The Gig Work Transparency bill, introduced in the Senate on Monday, seeks to open the books for drivers and customers who use Uber, Lyft and other app-based delivery platforms. SB23-098 would mandate that tech companies show how much drivers earn on each ride and how much the business takes. The legislation would also require gig companies to give drivers more information related to wages, time worked and expenses.
And the bill would create a review mechanism through the state that would allow drivers to challenge deactivations and terminations.
"We're bringing transparency to these platforms — and just to be clear, that's what they promised us from the beginning,” Vigil said. “The whole point here is for you to run your own work, work off the platform, make informed decisions about what jobs you want to take and which ones you don't want to take. We're building some accountability into that system so that those promises are actually realized.”
