Delivery workers have been fighting for a long time for decent work, health and safety, and the right to join a union. And as COVID-19 has required us to stay in place, their work to bring people food and groceries has become essential.
The Toronto Star‘s Work and Wealth report, Sara Mojtehedzadeh, talks to The Big Story podcast about her reporting on Foodora couriers fight for decent work – from the misclassification of workers, their union organizing efforts, the company’s exit in Canada, and how the pandemic has or hasn’t changed their work.
You can listen to Sara talk about the economic context and process of reporting here. Then check out her six-part podcast series, Hustled, to dive deep into the story and hear from couriers directly.
