UBER AND LYFT MAKE US SICK

Gig workers sound off on the Uber-Postmates deal: ‘It’s like an embezzler buying a bank’

Fortune

As investors cheered on Uber’s agreement to buy Postmates for $2.65 billion on Monday, another crowd reacted differently: the gig workers who underpin the ride-hailing and food-delivery business. Edan Alva, a driver who opted for Lyft over Uber during the latter’s years of scandal, called the deal “unethical” and “immoral” because, he said, it will amplify Uber’s ability to suppress worker pay. Drivers and food couriers receive a share of the ride and meal-order fees charged by the app-based companies, which also take a hefty cut.
