Ride-hailing drivers are protesting low wages as Uber prepares to follow Lyft on to the public market. Drivers have been saying for years that the services pay too little and unfairly avoid offering additional benefits by classifying them as contractors instead of full-time employees. Both Uber and Lyft have offered rewards to their most active and long-standing drivers as part of their IPOs.
