Despite the rain at LAX on May 4th 2023, Southern California drivers showed up for a National Day of Action--and we showed up in force. We can’t just drive, we must drive change!
We made some noise at the rally and during the caravan. No, actually, we made a LOT of noise! There were between 150-200 Uber/Lyft cars honking and crawling around the departure loop at LAX. And cars were joining the caravan when they saw us in action. Some may have been drivers, some may have been delivery workers, but all were supporters of fairness and safety for app-based workers.
Reporter and personality Sergio Avedian with The Rideshare Guy YouTube channel, captured the rally and caravan on video. Sergio comments that this was probably the largest protest he’d seen at LAX “so far” and whether or not you were at LAX for the fight, you can feel the energy by watching his coverage: LAX Gets SHUT DOWN by Gig Worker Protest ?!. Frankly, it may not have been the largest protest of app-based workers at LAX, but it was a really great turnout.
