In 2019 Instacart drivers staged a strike only wanting a mandatory 10% tip. It never happened. They used to *suggest* a 10% tip, but then the CEO installed a bullshit 5% "service fee" (they pocket) & so the default tip was HALVED to 5%! If U use Instacart PLS tip at LEAST 12%.

Considering that tech workers are practically used as strikebreakers, and are less replacable, organizing us is key. Instacart is horribly exploitative. Having the servers be able to strike along with the shoppers is a whole other level of power to stop them. #techaction
