Billion dollar gig corporations like Uber and Lyft exploit their workers by misclassifying them to dodge paying their fair share into Social Security and Medicare.

@RepDebHaaland's #GigIsUp will make these corporations finally pay their fair share.

[DLBN] ‘GIG IS UP’ BILL FILED: “Large gig economy companies valued at billions of $$ are taking advantage of workers by misclassifying them as independent contractors to get out of paying their fair share of Social Security & Medicare taxes.“ [ALNORMAN]

.@RepDebHaaland's #GigIsUp bill will strengthen Social Security and Medicare by making sure corporations like Uber and Lyft stop taking advantage of their workers and start paying their fair share.

"Ubers top executives are taking home $140 million dollars while the drivers are average $8 to $10 per hour."

.@RepDebHalaand's #GigIsUp Act would make giant corporations like Uber pay their fair share into Social Security.

All workers deserve to retire in dignity. It's past time for corporations like Uber to pay their fair share into Social Security.

@RepDebHaaland's #GigIsUp Act will ensure just that.

The #GigIsUp!

It's time for corporations like Uber and Lyft to pay their fair share into Social Security and Medicare instead of passing the buck to their workers.
