Minneapolis City Council recently voted to enforce a wage requirement for ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft within city limits, a move that has prompted both companies to announce their plans to cease operations in the city once the ordinance takes effect on May 1,  

According to the Associated Press, under the new ordinance, rideshare companies are mandated to pay drivers a minimum rate, which was set at either $1.40 per mile and $0.51 per minute or $5 per ride, whichever amount is greater. This wage requirement applies to all transportation services provided within the city of Minneapolis. 

The ordinance was intended to ensure that rideshare drivers are being compensated at the same rate as the city’s hourly minimum wage, which is currently set at $15.57 per hour. Jamal Osman, the City Councilman who co-authored the ordinance, emphasized the importance of this, while also highlighting how a large number of drivers are immigrants from Africa. :snip:

In case you're wondering Why you quarter pounder cost  so much that is a bit over  32,000 a year. BTW know Anyone who woks for minimum wage? I never did even when it was $2.50 an hour.

Why is this happening? 5th CD is +30 Democrat. The DFL is on The far left of the Democratic Party.
