Gig workers are asking the app-based grocery-delivery firm to pay them per order rather than per group of orders, to offer occupational-death benefits and to raise the default tip to at least 10 per cent per order, among other demands. The Gig Workers Collective, which is organizing the protest, has also called for customers to boycott the app. The walkout is set to begin Saturday. (The Canadian Press)
