New York Taxi Workers Support Pro-Refugee Protests; Uber Fills Void, Then Apologizes for “Confusion”

US & World News

Uber announced that they would be suspending surge pricing at JFK, effectively lowering the cost of rides while the New York City Taxi Worker’s Alliance called for a complete stop to pickups from 6 to 7 pm at John F. Kennedy International airport as an act of solidarity after two Iraqi nationals were detained by Customs & Border Patrol.

‘We’re sorry for any confusion about our earlier tweet — it was not meant to break up any strike,” a spokesperson for Uber said. “We wanted people to know they could use Uber to get to and from JFK at normal prices, especially last night.”
