NYC Uber Drivers Going On Strike At Noon

If you are an Uber user that lives in New York City, you might have a hard time getting anywhere today. The article states that around one thousand drivers are expected to take part in the strike.

As a service powered by independent contractors, of course, what a "strike" looks like is just a bunch of people logging out of an app. That’s why the striking drivers plan to gather at Uber’s New York headquarters in Long Island City, Queens and protest as well as logging out of their app. Participants are supposed to stay logged out for 24 hours.
