Hundreds of Uber drivers protested to demand higher minimum wages Tuesday.

The group "Fight for 15" said Uber drivers planned to idle their cars and march in several cities across the country.

Drivers complain of aggressive fare cuts and no accounting for expenses like gas, repairs and insurance.

Uber officials said drivers actually make more than $19 an hour in the top 20 minutes of their service.
