Ford set to announce $15 minimum wage for gig economy workers

CP24: 'The Ontario government is set to introduce new legislation Monday that will give app-based gig workers “fundamental rights,” including a $15 minimum wage and transparency when it comes to their tips.

'The “Digital Platform Workers’ Rights Act” will guarantee a regular minimum wage for individuals employed by app-based services, such as ride-share drivers and couriers, which they will receive on top of their tips. It also makes it mandatory for workers to receive a recurring pay period and pay day while prohibiting tips from being withheld by platform operators.

'“We continue to hear stories that, you know, one week a gig worker will make $1,400 and the next week they'll make $500, and they don't know why,” Ontario Labour Minister Monte McNaughton told CTV News Toronto.'
