Uber and Lyft drivers across the country plan to strike on Wednesday ahead of Uber's long-anticipated IPO, which is expected to raise about $9 billion. But drivers complain that they are not getting their fair share of the money, with many citing pay cuts and what they say are unlivable wages. Participating drivers are turning off their apps for the day and encouraging riders to do the same. Will you participate in the strike?
