Rideshare workers gathered downtown to call attention to a local ordinance that if passed would make improvements in their industry.

CHICAGO—Rideshare drivers gathered outside City Hall on September 21, along with a few aldermen calling on the city to require better wages and improved safety measures for the industry.

The Chicago Gig Alliance demands the city council take action on an ordinance that would set a minimum wage for Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies’ drivers, institute a cap on what the companies can take for each ride, and limit increased pricing. The ordinance would also require passengers be required to verify their identity in rideshare app to help improve security and safety. The ordinance was introduced in February but has not yet gotten a vote.
