COVID-19 response

  • 30 March 2020 (19 days since WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic):
    • Encouraging: Organizes a workers strike against Instagram asking the company for an "additional US$5 per order and an automatic tip of 10% of the order total, as well as safety gear like hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and soap".[1]
      • Accuses Instacart of profiteering, saying "Instacart has turned this pandemic into a PR campaign, portraying itself the hero of families that are sheltered-in-place, isolated, or quarantined. Instacart has still not provided essential protections to Shoppers on the front lines that could prevent them from becoming carriers, falling ill themselves, or worse".[1]
