Numerous class-action lawsuits have been filed against companies using nepotism tactics to undervalue those who serve the company. Not a single class-action lawsuit has been taken to proceedings in court, dismissed because these gig-economy "jobs" are not contracts of employment for those various people who fulfill these services.

1) Do NOT use those apps, or participate in the gig-economy.
2) If you do use those apps, TIP in CASH! The currency with little tracking
