CARRINGTON, Mass.

— Drivers who rent cars for work are getting a break from a new law that limits their pay to $200 a day, according to the Boston Globe.

The law was introduced by Massachusetts Gov.

Deval Patrick in 2016 to prevent taxi drivers from taking $200 for every ride in their vehicles.

That’s far more than many Uber drivers make in a month, the Globe reports.

But it’s only $200 in Boston, and drivers will still be limited to making $20 an hour.

They can make $30 an hour in New York City.

“This law will allow us to make a difference in the lives of millions of drivers who work for Uber,” Patrick said in a statement.

Uber said it had not seen the Globe article.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Department of Labor and Industries said the department has not received a formal request from the state, the Boston Herald reports.

The department has previously said it’s not required to issue the wage limit.

“While we appreciate that the Department of Health and Human Services is committed to ensuring that our drivers are compensated fairly, we believe it is important that drivers be able to make the kinds of living they need to make ends meet,” the spokeswoman said in an email to the newspaper.
