MINNEAPOLIS, M.N. (KELO) — Last night, the Minneapolis City Council voted to pass an ordinance creating a minimum wage for rideshare drivers.
This comes just days after Uber and Lyft threatened to pull their services from the city if the measure passed.
The proposal sets a minimum wage for rideshare drivers that is equivalent to Minneapolis’ minimum wage at $15.
It also sets new rules on how companies can discipline, terminate or deactivate drivers.
The mayor has expressed reservations about the ordinance, but has not said whether he will veto it.
