A former Milwaukee Uber driver is suing the company over the amount of money he's making working for the ride sharing service. Lamont Lathan says Uber owes him overtime and tips. 

Brian Mahany represents Lathan in the lawsuit. He says after talking to hundred of other drivers, his client has a legitimate case.

"When Uber started, drivers were making more money."

Mahany says there are a few factors to take into account with this case.

"One, there's an over saturation of drivers in many markets," Mahany says. "And as Uber competes more heavily with other ride share services like Lyft, the amount of money paid to drivers is being reduced."

Mahany joined John Mercure on Wisconsin's Afternoon News to talk about the lawsuit.
