Have y’all been following what’s happening with Instacart this week? The company is retaliating against workers, and it’s really, really bad. I’m going to share what I know in a thread. 👇

Instacart is a grocery delivery service. “Shoppers” are the workers who pick up items at the store and deliver them to customers. Instacart keeps wages really, really low. A Shopper in Menlo Park says she makes a few hundred a week.

Shoppers went on strike this week with two demands: - The app increase the default tip option from 5% to 10%. - Instacart stop charging “service fees” and pocketing them.

Instacart not only didn’t honor the workers strike demands, but they retaliated and cut pay further! They cut bonuses which can be up to 40% of the workers’ income. The workers are contractors so they aren’t as protected from this retaliation.

Calling Instacart to give them negative customer feedback could help turn this around too. If you're a customer who's boycotting, let them know!
