Gig worker transparency and more ways to fight for progress this week (April 24)

  • 0 Comments
  • by: ProgressNow Colorado

We’re in the closing days of the 2023 session of the Colorado General Assembly, and it’s crunch time to make sure some of the most important priorities of the year don’t get lost in the shuffle.

Action item #1 this week: It’s time for consumers and the gig workers we all rely on to work together for transparency and fairness. Big gig companies like Uber, Lyft and DoorDash are opposed to transparency to their workers and customers about pricing and the cut taken by app providers. There’s no good reason why gig employers shouldn’t be honest with their customers and workforce about where the money goes. That’s what Senate Bill 23-098, Gig Work Transparency, is all about.

Gig Work Transparency is up for debate tomorrow afternoon in the Colorado Senate Finance Committee. We need you to contact your lawmakers right now and urge a YES vote on Senate Bill 23-098.

The bottom line: consumers have as much of an interest in financial transparency as gig workers, and a fair process to protect drivers and consumers is a win-win for everyone. Gig work has proven an economic lifeline for thousands of Coloradans as well as made consumers’ lives easier, and this legislation is about keeping the system working fairly for everyone.

Next up: the fight to modernize Colorado’s antiquated workplace harassment laws continues as the POWR Act moves to the Colorado House. It is years past time to update Colorado’s out-of-date workplace harassment and discrimination policies. The POWR Act will update the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act to replace the outdated “severe or pervasive” requirement with clear standards and provide clear guidance to employers on preventing harassment. With your help, this important bill has passed the Colorado Senate and is on to the House! Click here to urge your state representative to support this common-sense modernization of Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws.

For the current status on all the legislation PNC is supporting this session, check the PNC Bill Tracker.

Parasol Patrol supports events in Denver, CO

Parasol Patrol is a non-profit organization that shields children and young people from protesters at LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC events.

We use umbrellas to create a visual barrier while we walk children and their families past the signs and angry faces of those who might do them harm. We even have noise-canceling ear protection for the little ones to muffle the taunts of the protesters sometimes shouted through bullhorns.

When: Wednesday, April 26 at 1:30pm
Where: 574 W 6th Ave., Denver

Click here to RSVP.

When: Friday, April 28 at 4:30pm

When: Monday, May 22 at 6:00pm
Where: Town Hall Collaborative, 525 N Santa Fe St., Denver
