Do not plan to use Uber on October 16,17 or 18, You may experience surge pricing or no service at all. It is not yet known if Lyft drivers are joining in on this strike, if not try that service. The strike is nationwide but it is really targeting the Cities where Uber rates are so low that the drivers cannot even make minimum wage. If You live in a City that charges less than 1.50 per mile, You will notice that most drivers speak very little English and are very poor drivers. This is because the very good drivers quit.
