At the center of the debate around the “future of work” is a key question: does the gig economy pay enough for workers to survive? For app drivers that use Uber or Lyft platforms in New York City and elsewhere, the answer is unclear.

Join The Century Foundation on Tuesday, October 16 for an evening discussion with Meera Joshi, Commissioner of NYC’s Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC), and a panel of experts to discuss the challenges and potential solutions for improving working conditions of platform drivers in New York and across the country.
