We cover it all in this video: A product exclusively for gig workers The gig economy isn't working for its workers. The established companies in this industry have built their businesses primarily thinking about their consumers. As a result, they often overlook their workers. Moves is the product that will prioritize the needs of gig workers. A collective voice for millions Since launching, we've talked to thousands of gig workers across the country. We've heard you talk about flexibility and your pursuit of independence in the gig economy. We've also heard what isn't working. A gig economy owned by its workers Our mission starts by serving gig workers and standing for your collective interests, but we won't stop until we've fundamentally changed the math in your favor. The gig economy will continue to grow and generate enormous value in an increasingly modern world. We believe that value belongs to you. Over the coming months, we'll be sharing more about how we're unlocking that ownership by using innovative technologies that put gig workers in the driver's seat.

London's new “worker” classification. Airport re-matching EASTER EGG for drivers here in the United States.

We discuss the 3 different apps Gary has created: 1) Maxymo: Helps rideshare & delivery drivers become safer drivers by auto-switching between apps, auto-accepting only the trips they want & auto-declining unprofitable trips. The more services you drive for, the more trips you can get, which equals less downtime and more money. 2) DUH (Drivers Utility Hub): The Drivers Utility Helper app is designed to assist independent contractors that are already signed up for doordash be safer drivers & more proficient while on delivery. Keep your focus on driving & delivering, less on watching your phone for orders. 3) Flex Alert: Do you deliver for Amazon Flex? Well then you know the hassle of tapping the screen for hours on end just to see if there is a block available. Flex Alert helps take away this task with automated tapping, sound alerts and notifications to let you know when a block has appeared. Now you can focus on other task or earn on other gigs while you wait for a block to drop. Did we mention it is free? Ready... Set... Rodeo!!!!!

    Uber Lyft Drivers and Gig Economy Workers Weekly News & Interviews [Weekend Bonus Episode]: This weeks bonus podcast is a little different than usual.  I interviewed Felix a.k.a.  Mr.Flex YouTube Creator.   I am figuring out when this interview will drop, either this weekend or next weekend.   The reason for the change is..... About a month ago, Ron (EntreCourier.com) had me on his podcast to discuss 'ProAct', and a little 'AB5', 'Prop22'.   After we recorded, Ron said, you should post this on Rideshare Rodeo podcast too.   We let about a month go by between the two podcast drops.   In this Ron is interviewing me.  The timing of this content is perfect, since in just a couple weeks I will be having Veena Dubal on the podcast. Thank you to our sponsor Curri! Sign up to drive Curri HERE IS THE BREAKDOWN OF OUR INTERVIEW: The government has been busy lately trying to get things pushed through. We've seen in the past few days the Infrastructure bill and Budget Reconciliation stuff go through the Senate. One of the things that's been a priority for Democrats has been the PRO Act. Protecting the Right to Organize. One of the things the act does is implement the ABC test that was the heart of California's AB5, and the ABC test would then determine classification of employee verses independent contractor for purposes of labor laws.  If it's passed and stands up to court challenges, PRO Act could force Doordash, Uber, Grubhub, Lyft and other gig companies to hire employees rather than employees. Steve Johnson of UberLyftDrivers.com joins us to talk about employment, being an independent contractor, the repercussions of being an employee, and whether Pro Act has a chance of passing. Steve has had several guests on his Rideshare Rodeo podcast and shares insights he's gained from his many conversations on the topic.   Additional reading on PRO Act AB5 and Prop 22: A listing of articles about California's AB5 which implemented the ABC Test, and about Prop 22, the ballot initiative that exempted gig platforms from AB5. What is PRO Act?Driver App London is a blog by Mourad, a frequent guest on Steve's podcast. Later in the episode Steve talks about how some places in Europe are a step ahead of where they are in the US including an app worker designation. The following was the general outline we attempted to follow. Things may have gone a little out of order here and there. Introductions: Steve talks about his gig economy background, how his website and podcast got started, and then talks about the different guests he's had on his podcast to talk about PRO Act (guests both in favor of and against the legislation). Employment verses Independent Contractors Why is this even important? What is there to lose if we are employees? What is PRO Act and how does that impact things? What is the ABC test from California's AB5 and that is now part of PRO Act? How does that compare to the current IRS test Doordash, Uber, Lyft, Grubhub and others as bad actors Part of the problem does lie in the way gig companies treat their contractors. Is there exploitation of the independent contractor model by these companies? How do their actions contribute to how some want to force a change? Can PRO Act be passed into law? PRO Act is stalled right now. Does that mean that it's safe? What kind of things can lead to it passing? Is there a better alternative? Is forcing gig companies to hire employees the only answer? Is there a better way to handle the bad acting of gig companies?  Ready... Set... Rodeo!!!!! Via~~~~> https://entrecourier.com/ ****** Thank you to our sponsor Curri!

    Uber Lyft Drivers & Gig Economy Workers Weekly News:     This week I talk about California's new electric car mandate placed on Uber and Lyft, problem is it is 9 years away.   Rideshare drivers being attacked and killed in record numbers, and a Colorado driver has a passenger take their mask off during ride while coughing, when the driver asks the passenger if they have COVID19(?).   The Biden administration faces a huge hurdle regarding the PROAct, especially since they are in bed with Uber and Lyft.   Passengers are back in droves, drivers are not, when will drivers come back to rideshare?   Chicago City Council plans to introduce an ordinance requiring companies licensed as "transportation network providers" to charge no more than 150% of their "current regular fare" even during snowstorms and other high demand "surge" periods.

    #57 | Will Biden's PRO Act Kill Your Job?

    Play Episode Listen Later May 19, 2021 69:05

    Uber Lyft Drivers & Gig Economy Workers Weekly News:     This week we cover a range of topics. 1) WAYMO: “I don’t think it was supposed to do that,” Johnson said with a laugh. “Oh no. Now it’s blocking the entire road.” When the roadside assistance team did arrive, the car sprang into motion again and drove down the road before stopping at an intersection and blocking three lanes of traffic. 2) UBER: Uber driver says gender is the reason she was removed from the platform, and there is audio proof. 3) DELIVERY PLATFORM MERGERS: The app disqualifies drivers with either one recent major driving violation or multiple recent minor driving violations. Adams reached out to Checkr, the background check company Uber uses, to correct the error but hasn’t heard back yet. 4) ALGORITHM COURT RULING: The Amsterdam Court was asked to determine to what extent the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) could protect individuals from unfair automated decision-making, specifically, individuals have the right to certain protections from automated decisions which create negative effects but are carried out without meaningful human intervention. On 14 April 2021 the Court of Amsterdam ordered that Uber Technologies Inc.reinstate drivers dismissed by an algorithm in the UK. 5) BIDEN'S PRIMARY PROAct OBSTACLE: The Biden administration made a rule that Independent Contractors must be employees unless they pass the three prongs of the "ABC", which was adopted from California's failed new law AB5, which has ruined hundreds of thousands ability to earn. The move stands to throw a wrench in the business models of companies like Uber and DoorDash. The problem is it affects 59 million workers (a.k.a. 36% of the U.S. workforce). The big problem here is that Biden has also partnered with Uber and Lyft to get people to be vaccinated, causing a clear conflict of interest. “Whenever wealthy corporations with big lobbying operations secure a deal like this, we need to take a hard look at whether there were improper influence efforts involved,” said Delaney Marsco, ethics legal counsel for the Washington-based nonprofit Campaign Legal Center.
