      This is just saying that drivers now have to make $17.22 an hour, not that it is the cities minimum wage.

      I actually always thought it was $12 in NYC.

        Keep in mind they're factoring in a car and expense cost per hour so that $17.22 is supposed to represent a minimum wage AFTER expenses.

          right, after taxes and car expenses this will probably be even less than $12. How are they going to guarantee this minimum? Do you know?
