Our Innovators


Led by Working Washington, #PayUp is a national campaign comprised of digital gig workers organizing to raise pay and set standards for their industry. Our digital-centered approach has allowed us to build the largest community of app-based delivery workers in the country (more than 10,000 and growing daily), primarily from food or grocery delivery platforms like Instacart, DoorDash, and Postmates.
