Mass. Uber drivers file suit against ride-sharing company over wages, OT

“Uber treats all of its drivers like independent contractors even though they provide the core service, which is transportation,” said the plaintiffs’ attorney, Travis Lenkner, managing partner of Chicago-based law firm Keller Lenkner LLC. “By doing that, Uber gets to evade minimum wage, overtime, and sick leave laws. Many of the drivers make less than $8 an hour even though in Massachusetts it is $12 an hour.”
