In New York there are car services that are supposed to be better towards drivers. The reality is that even these alternatives have issues.
The lawsuit is proof that ride-hail companies pitching themselves as friendlier alternatives to Uber and Lyft are still not immune to much of the upheaval that has plagued those apps. Recently, the Independent Drivers Guild of New York filed a formal complaint against Gett and Juno with the Federal Trade Commission for misleading drivers with false claims about earnings. The FTC has made rulings relevant to the ride-hail industry, ordering Uber to pay $20 million to drivers to settle misleading claims about earnings and financing.
