Yash, Uber & Lyft driver
“I’ve been hit hard with COVID crisis. in the last couple of weeks I lost my income. It’s been down to nine bucks an hour, after expense its four or five dollars an hour. I’ve been taking people from and to the hospital. Some people have colds, some people were coughing and sneezing in my car. I’m concerned about potential exposure to the coronavirus. Now I’ve stopped working for fear for coronavirus.” said Yash Uber & Lyft driver and a member of Gig Workers Rising.
“Since I’ve stopped working I’ve spent more than $2,000 on groceries, car payment, gas, house and utility expenses…My savings are shrinking fast. I applied for unemployment and it’s been a week with no word from the state. We need help as soon as possible. We can’t afford a delay.”
