Bill, Lyft driver

Posted in: Worker Stories

“I’ve been driving since I was 16. 46 years without an accident of any kind until I got rear ended driving for Lyft. It’s been very, very rough getting restarted because of loss of income, I lost my car and had to replace my vehicle, and was two months behind on my rent…[Lyft] did absolutely nothing for me,” says Bill, recalling what it was like after he was rear ended last year.

“I was unable to buy a vehicle. Because I drove for Lyft and my credit was ruined because the banks don’t recognize that as an income. They did absolutely nothing for me, they didn’t give a damn. I was just another casualty.”

Misclassified workers injured on the job don’t qualify for worker’s comp or lost wages.
