Protest actions will take place in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and other American cities. In Great Britain — in London, Birmingham, Nottingham and Glasgow. Employees of the aggregator intend to demand increase in tariffs and decrease in the commission of Uber from 25% to 15% and also improvement of working conditions, including a payment for work on the weekend. The resident of San Francisco Andrey Bulgak in general tells about hard work of drivers of Uber and taxi service: "Very much complain. I spoke with one of directors of the Russian company of the taxi, one of the biggest here yesterday, he says: "The taxi dies". Just earlier still thought that something will happen to Uber, Uber will raise the prices, maybe, the market will be saturated, all taxi drivers counted on it. There passed years, and it became obvious that to count there is nothing any more. Perhaps, the third generation of the main users of these services in San Francisco was updated already, they do not know about the taxi at all, all already in phones wait for Uber. Here, in San Francisco, their thousands, and such feeling that they are just used as slave force. These people both spend the day, and spend the night in cars, in a literal sense. And the problem is that pay them less and less. Let's tell if before the taxi in the airport cost 60-70 dollars, Uber will give 25 dollars. This eventually very strongly offended many drivers". The strike is dated to IPO service which has to take place on May 9. There are no doubts that investors will answer with dollar, the asset manager of the International fund of private investments Alexander Dushkin says: Alexander Dushkin the asset manager of the International fund of private investments "It, certainly, very significant event for the world as it is one of the largest companies in the field of IT. This is the leader of the world in transportations of people. This company — the global leader in losses in the sphere. They earn minus of 3 billion dollars on operational level, plus still lose half a billion on percent. Investors began to be very cautious and think of what happens to the technological companies. Why, despite their solid age and leader positions of global character and hundreds of millions of subscribers, they have no profit. I think that the similar strike is serious threat. It in principle can influence IPO transfer". The competitor of Uber in the USA, the Lyft company, already came for the IPO in March, also against the background of discontent of employees. Initial stock value was more than 87 dollars, however by the end of the second day of the auction of paper fell in price by 12%. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
