In return for giving your time and talents to a company, the pay drivers earn should cover the essentials, such as a roof over a family’s head and food on the table.
But corporations like Uber and Lyft are not holding up their end of the deal. Over the years, Uber and Lyft have continuously slashed driver pay. Drivers are forced to work longer and longer hours away from their families for wages that leave them struggling to survive. All the while, Uber and Lyft funnel more and more into the pockets of executives and investors.
Drivers are the ones who carry people from A to B. Drivers take all the risks of the road. Drivers even shoulder the costs of the car and the gas. Drivers deserve a fair return on their work.
Gig Workers Rising is a campaign that partners with app-based workers to inform them and support them in their demands that include those above.
