Terri Gerstein Calls Out Gig Corporations’ Grift

Terri Gerstein (’95), Director of the New York University Wagner Labor Initiative, authored an article for Slate discussing how gig corporations create unfair competition by avoiding workplace laws and freeload off law-abiding employers that support safety nets (“How Uber and Lyft Avoid Millions in Business Taxes,” May 20). “Federal, state, and local policymakers should stop letting gig corporations off the hook for flouting our core workplace laws. And business leaders nationwide should be up in arms about gig corporations’ grifting. Honest employers’ self-interest lies with everyone paying their fair share.”
