(CNN) – Uber and Lyft drivers plan to strike and rally before Uber begins public trading.
The rideshare drivers are planning to strike and rally in New York City for two hours Wednesday morning, that’s according to the New York Taxi Workers Alliance.

They say the drivers hope to send a message to Uber, that they want livable incomes, job security, and regulated fares.
Lyft drivers intend to voice concerns over recent pay cuts.
Ahead of going public, and as tokens of Goodwill, Uber and Lyft have offered drivers who meet certain thresholds cash bonuses, but drivers say it’s not enough.
