New York City has become the first in the U.S. to set a minimum wage for app-based car services. The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission voted Tuesday to establish a per-minute and per-mile payment formula for Uber, Lyft, Via, Juno and Gett that is supposed to result in drivers earning $17.22 an hour. Regulators say it will raise drivers’ annual earnings by $10,000 a year.
