The week in question follows the January 30th protest where the New York Taxi Workers Alliance called on taxi drivers to protest Trump’s Muslim ban by avoiding John F. Kennedy International Airport for one hour. While taxis protested, Uber decided to deactivate surge pricing to capitalize on the lack of transportation, resulting in the #DeleteUber hashtag trending on social media.MG
