    The Ford government is introducing a new legislation on Monday that is increasing the minimum wage to $15 for gig workers. The government is also enforcing more transparency when it comes to their tips. The legislation is called the “Digital Platform Workers’ Rights Act”  that is directed towards individuals employed by app-based services.

    These app-based services include ride-share drivers and courier services. The new act will guarantee a regular minimum wage on top of their tips. It will also guarantee workers receive a recurring pay period and payday while prohibiting tips from being withheld by platform operators. 

    Ontario’s Labour Minister Monte McNaughton told CTV News Toronto that “We continue to hear stories that, you know, one week a gig worker will make $1,400 and the next week they’ll make $500, and they don’t know why,… So we’re going to bring forward transparency, so workers know exactly how the algorithm works and how they’re going to be paid.”
