Bernie Sanders Says He Stands In 'Solidarity' With Uber and Lyft Strike

Sen.

Bernie Sanders of Vermont expressed support for Uber and Lyft drivers going on strike on Wednesday over work conditions and pay rates.

"These drivers are not 'independent contractors'β€”they are employees who deserve rights and benefits.

I stand in solidarity with them as they strike today for a dignified life." Wednesday's comment is in line with Sanders' routine criticism of mega-companies like Amazon, Walmart, and Disney over their treatment of workers.
