Lyft drivers in New York claim they’re being shortchanged by the ride-hailing company

On the heels of news that Uber Technologies Inc. owes its New York drivers tens of millions of dollars, drivers are now claiming that Uber archrival Lyft Inc. has been shortchanging them.

The Independent Drivers Guild, a union of about 50,000 New York ride-hailing-service drivers, and New York state assembly member Robert Rodriguez are calling for a state investigation into the company, alleging that Lyft is deducting a state sales tax from driver pay for interstate trips. This comes about a week after Uber admitted it had incorrectly taken a higher commission from New York drivers and now owed drivers an average of $900 apiece, according to the Wall Street Journal.
