Gig Workers Rising alongside 15 groups from across the U.S. and the world are joining together on Twitter today (using #TheGigIsUp) to make their demands heard to the executives of Uber, Lyft, Instacart and all companies who use apps to misclassify workers. These groups represent the frontline workers who, during this pandemic and every day, are transporting healthcare workers, keeping families fed and packages delivered.
