If you’ve found this page then you’ve likely seen my Tiktok viral video!
My name is Riley Elliot, I am originally from Seattle, but now live in Las Vegas. I was a gig economy worker up until last week when the internet saved my family from homelessness through their generosity! Now I would like to pay it forward to other gig economy workers.
Food delivery drivers are out risking their lives in this global pandemic to bring food and supplies to folks and are being exploited by companies like Uber eats and DoorDash. They are working for criminally low rates as contractors. They receive no medical benefits to protect them if they were to contract corona virus.
These gig economy apps are charging astronomical fees to both customers and restaurants, sometimes putting restaurants in the position of losses because of the fees they have to pay. And the drivers are only receiving a few dollars for their time, effort and wear and tear on their vehicle.
There are major systemic issues that need to be addressed to fix this, but in the meantime, drivers are relying on customer tips to survive. Not receiving a tip on an order can sometimes result in a financial loss for the driver after gas and vehicle maintenance.
It’s time to hold these companies accountable.
This fund will be used to help struggling gig economy workers. I will keep none of these funds, y’all have blessed my family beyond our wildest dreams.
We are in the process of building a website with a basic request form. We intend to send the same set amount (TBD) to those gig workers sending in a request. These funds are for the benefit of gig economy workers only.
Spread The Kindness!!!
