Co-sponsorship memo circulating for minimum wage for TNC drivers

Co-sponsorship memo circulating for minimum wage for TNC drivers

A co-sponsorship memo currently circulating may bring some financial certainty to the world of ride-share drivers. Rep. Maria Donatucci (D-Philadelphia) is currently seeking support for a minimum wage for drivers who work for transportation network companies, or TNCs, like Uber and Lyft.
 
Donatucci published the memo late last month. Drivers across Pennsylvania have complained to legislators and others that uncertain wages from trips create anxiety and make them less likely to continue working.
