Zwick discusses Uber, Lyft drivers strike in Agence France Presse

Austin ZwickAustin Zwick, assistant teaching professor of public affairs, was quoted in the Agence France Press article "Uber, Lyft Drivers Strike to Press Demands on Rideshare Firms." Zwick says the job actions are an attempt to shift the balance of power between drivers and platforms, which now have the power to arbitrarily determine compensation and benefits. "The joint strike plus boycott strategy appear unlikely to succeed nationally as it does not appear that all drivers and passengers are unified behind the cause," he says. 05/10/19
