A fare deal: Uber and Lyft drivers to earn $32.50 per hour in Massachusetts settlement

Drivers for Uber and Lyft will earn a minimum pay standard of $32.50 per hour under a settlement announced June 27 by Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Campbell, in a deal that also includes a suite of benefits and protections.

The two companies will also be required to pay a combined $175 million to the state to resolve allegations that the companies violated Massachusetts wage and hour laws, a substantial majority of which will be distributed to current and former drivers.

Ms. Campbell said the settlement resolves her office’s yearslong litigation against the two companies and stops the threat of their attempt to rewrite state employment law by a proposed 2024 ballot initiative.
