App Workers Demand Freedom and Fair Wages
No matter where we live, what we look like, or what we do for a living, we value our freedom. Driving for rideshare and delivery corporations may promise the flexibility for people to set their own schedule, but today the CEOs of Uber, Lyft, and Doordash take home record pay and those corporations gouge prices while refusing to pay what they owe to the people they rely on to gas, repair, and operate the vehicles that allow these businesses to function.
App corporations like Uber, Lyft and Doordash dodge minimum wage laws and continue cutting into drivers’ earnings, forcing drivers to work long hours away from their families in order to barely make ends meet. All the while, the corporations funnel more and more to the pockets of executives and investors.
App corporations offload costs and risks onto workers. Despite how dangerous app work is, too many drivers and delivery workers are left on their own to figure out strategies to protect themselves and make a living.
Corporations like Uber, Lyft, Doordash and Instacart must pay the people who work on their apps a fair return for their work and ensure that workers have a voice on the job. Sign on to stand with app workers who are demanding: a living wage, benefits, transparency and a voice at work.
Why is this important?
Real freedom is about more than making a living while hoping today is a good one; it's also about having the freedom to negotiate a fair return on our work, affordable health care and good benefits we can rely on, and paid time off to care for loved ones and retire in dignity. By standing together across race and place, we can ensure working people have the freedom to join together in union and live a good life, no exceptions.
