We must do everything it takes to protect our front-line heroes. Happy to pay additional delivery fee it would cost to provide them the safeguards they need.
Workers say they will refuse to accept orders until Instacart provides hazard pay of an additional $5 an order and free safety gear.
These are not big demands. They're the bare minimum Instacart should offer and yet
“Instacart has been busy crafting a rather heroic public image as the saviors of families sheltered-in-place … In truth, Instacart is providing no protection to its existing [gig workers], and profiting significantly off of this pandemic.”
