With high gas prices and carjackings a growing job risk, gig workers from companies like Lyft, Uber and DoorDash are demanding more from their employers.
Specifically, workers are demanding better pay, stronger safety measures and the right to unionize.
Among other changes, drivers are also asking for companies to require users to upload their photos from state-issued photo identification. Chicago has seen record carjackings in recent months and drivers say they want to feel safe when picking up their customers.
The group will call for those changes during the first-ever Chicago Gig Fest this Sunday.
