Tech workers pledge not to work for DoorDash until it pays drivers better

For the past few years, the tech worker movement has been driven by engineers at giants like Google and Facebook. They have lent support to working-class colleagues, like contract driver, housekeeping, and food service staff. But solidarity between the white collar (perhaps hoodie-collar) and blue collar workers may be growing as contractors at gig companies like Instacart and DoorDash organize to demand a minimum livable wage.
