Labor secretary: Some gig workers should be ’employees’ with benefits
Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said he believes some gig workers should be classified as “employees,” giving them the “safety net” of benefits and certain labor laws.
“We are looking at it, but in a lot of cases gig workers should be classified as employees,” Walsh said. “In some cases they are treated respectfully and in some cases they are not, and I think it has to be consistent across the board.”
