Lyft, Uber Eats, DoorDash, and Deliveroo workers disrupt Valentine’s Day with strike action


Recommended Posts

Valentine’s Day, a day typically associated with love and affection, has taken a different turn this year. The ridesharing and food delivery industry, including giants like Lyft, Uber Eats, Deliveroo, and DoorDash, are facing a significant disruption due to a widespread strike action.

 

Thousands of drivers across the United States have decided to strike on Valentine’s Day, seeking fair pay. This strike is the first of its kind since Uber and Lyft went public in 2019. The drivers, who are considered independent contractors, have accused these platforms of taking disproportionately high amounts as commissions.

 

The strike action is not just limited to the U.S. Valentine’s Day plans as these strikes could disrupt doorstep deliveries. The Justice For App Workers coalition, representing about 130,000 drivers and delivery workers, has announced that its drivers would not provide rides to and from airports between 11 am and 1 pm in 10 U.S. cities.

 

These strikes come at a time when these companies are under scrutiny for their pay structures. Despite recent promises by companies like Lyft to ensure drivers receive at least 70% of the money their clients pay, drivers argue that they are still not earning a livable wage.

 

As the world watches this unprecedented strike unfold on a day of love and celebration, it raises a critical question: How will this action impact the future of the gig economy and the livelihoods of those who depend on it? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this. Do you believe these strikes will bring about the desired change in the ridesharing and food delivery industry?
