Postmates workers want minimum delivery guarantees and at least $15 per hour

  • Organizers at Working Washington say these changes can reduce pay for typical jobs by up to 30 percent.
  • Postmates has since gotten rid of that minimum job guarantee and changed the base rate per job, as well as changed the per-mile rate in some markets.
  • Postmates says the new rates “remove the need for a minimum guarantee adjustment so you always know exactly what you’re earning,” the company wrote to workers in an email, obtained by TechCrunch.
  • Organizers with Working Washington, however, are asking other gig economy workers to sign a petition asking Postmates CEO Bastian Lehman to pay the company’s workers better.
  • Sage Wilson, an organizer at Working Washington who also spoke out about Instacart and DoorDash, says nearly 1,000 workers have signed a petition to Postmates CEO Bastian Lehman in about 24 hours.
