British Columbia: The labor minister has tabled legislation he says will protect to gig workers, such as those who provide ride-hailing and food-delivery services.
Harry Bains says the legislation will ensure the workers are treated fairly and that online companies won’t withhold their tips.
He says the companies that took part in consultations about the changes voiced concerns about higher costs to customers and keeping track of employees who often work for several app-based firms at the same time.
The law, if passed, would ensure a minimum hourly wage of 20 dollars and 10 cents an hour starting at the time they begin their
shift. (The Canadian Press)
