RDU-LA members will turn off their apps for the entire day throughout the Los Angeles metro area. Members will picket at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) terminals with colorful signs. A rally will be held at noon, where drivers will speak about the impact of withering wages other abuses inflicted by Uber and Lyft as both companies launch their IPOs. “Uber estimates that 15 percent of their revenues come from airport pick-ups” said Karim Bayumi, a Lyft driver who typically works at the airport. “We provide an essential service, but Uber and Lyft investors are only ones reaping the benefits. Our picket and rally will show that rideshare drivers will not be invisible—we demand justice.” Uber and Lyft drivers have faced real challenges this month. On March 11, Uber cut driver compensation in Los Angeles from .80 per mile to .60 per mile. Soon after, Lyft eliminated their multipliers, which allow drivers to earn more than the base rate of .80 per mile. Since the cuts, James Hicks, an Uber driver for three years, says he and his wife “are treading water so that we don’t drown.” The couple were already taking payday loans to afford the $2300 dollars a month for the two-bedroom apartment he shares with his wife. “With Uber’s cuts this month,” Hicks says, “we had to bite the bullet. We moved across the hall into a one bedroom for $1900, which is what our two-bedroom used to cost.” But while Wall Street and Silicon Valley cash in, drivers continue to bear the brunt. “Mayor Eric Garcetti rang the bell for Lyft’s IPO just days after our strike, calling them a socially responsible company,” said Sinakhone Keodara, a Lyft driver who has faced housing insecurity. “But creating an underclass of homeless drivers as collateral damage is anything but responsible. Driving for Lyft pays below minimum wage. We need a minimum per hour rate to compensate for the fact that we sometimes miss out on the bonuses.” In their recent S-1 filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Lyft says they can only be profitable if drivers are treated as independent contractors, which violates California state law. Similarly, Uber told their investors they expect greater driver dissatisfaction in the coming years. RDU-LA demands major reforms to the industry to make it fair, dignified, and sustainable. Their Drivers Bill of Rights includes a ten percent commission cap, transparency around deactivations, the right for drivers to organize and negotiate with the companies, and community standards around traffic and emissions to ensure that the rideshare industry benefits the cities where it operates."

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid Review and Road Test in 4K UHD!

in Toyota

Uploaded on

Toyota's Camry has long been a solid reliable mid-sized sedan but it's never been known for its handling ability... Until now. The 2018 Camry isn't just a ground-up redesign of Toyota's popular sedan, it represents a fundamental shift in personality for their best selling sedan because this Camry, even in Hybrid form, is one of the best handling mainstream sedans in America. In addition to improved handling ability, 2018 brings a more stylish and higher quality interior, more efficient engines and one of the first "no-compromises" hybrids in America. Thanks to a re-positioned battery pack, the new Hybrid Camry has exactly the same trunk as the non-hybrid model (including room for a full-sized spare aftermarket) and thanks to unusually wide tires the hybrid is still towards the top of the pack when it comes to handling. Will this new found sporty demeanor turn away some traditional Camry shoppers? Or will it attract new buyers looking for value and reliability without compromise?
