Lyft drivers would make more as employees, estimates show
Whether or not the estimate is on the mark isn't clear. We've reached out to Lyft for its take, and we'll let you know if it has a response. However precise the figures might be, they could have a big impact on the proposed settlement. It reckons that there would have been a total of $126 million in expense reimbursements, or more than 10 times the $12.25 million Lyft has agreed to pay so far. Although lawyers on both sides are currently fine with the deal, both the Teamsters union and five drivers already object to it – and they're likely to be that much angrier knowing that the lost income estimate is so high.
