Lyft sells PPE supplies to its drivers — and some are furious they’re not free

Lyft drivers are slamming the ridesharing company for selling personal protective equipment (PPE) to its drivers through an online store — saying masks and other safety supplies should be provided to them for free.  “It’s such an unreasonable and overall ridiculous level of cynicism to sell your workers the protective gear that they need for the risks that you expose them to and profit from,” said California Lyft driver Edan Alva. “There’s nothing about it that resembles trying to protect their drivers.” The Lyft Store sells items like reusable and disposable masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant, and more made by Mission Ready Solutions, Inc. The website says that there’s no markup prices on these items and that drivers pay wholesale prices (not including the shipping cost).
