Canadian, U.S. Instacart workers to walk off job


SAN FRANCISCO—Instacart workers in Canada and the U.S. plan to walk off the job Saturday in a bid to secure better pay and more benefits. Non-profit labour group Gig Workers Collective says droves of the grocery app’s workers in Canada and the U.S. will participate in the walkout. The workers are asking the company to pay them by order rather than batch, to reintroduce commissions, to provide occupational death benefits and to raise the default tip to at least 10 per cent for every order.
