    I don’t know if I would be comfortable handing over my banking data

    • My thoughts exactly — this is a scam. Users are giving up all their banking info (which has nothing to do with the jobs they have) so Steady can mine it & make $$ from it. But Steady isn’t offering anyone a steady, well-paid job or even a part-time job with consistent hours & a decent salary. No one at MSNBC pinned either of them down & made them explain HOW Steady is going to benefit the people who sign up for it. “Here’s the work that you can best to do til fill your income gaps.” WTF izzat? Nobody working full-time should have to work multiple jobs to get by –that’s a function of wages that effectively haven’t gone up in 30-odd years. The reason that 35% of people working for WalMart also work for Amazon is because neither of those companies will offer them a full-time job! How is Steady going to change that?

    Shaq, Really excited to learn of your involvement in this! I’m a sociologist and I’d love to talk!

  4. People aren’t under contract by choice. A lot of these companies that’s all they offer, especially to circumvent work laws

    • Indeed, with task rabbit and other Fivver don’t think this is for the baby sitting kid, this is a way for people with money to use people brain & give them nothing, no stake in return.
      No bargaining, not anything. Their goal is an economy for them & a parallel one for the rest of us and the absence of mobility.
      Some site have translators in a gig app.
      Don’t be fooled this is not for getting your grass cut,soon they’ll have CPA on there

    • And to circumvent medical and 401k’s.

  11. It’s pretty sad that the guy who starred in the movie Kazaam is doing more for our working class than the president who claims he’s the “hero of working people.”

  12. Shaq😏 idk people…

    If charles Barkley believes it, I’ll believe it.

  14. Too much access to banking data is an unnecessary risk for both the company and for the laborers that they are attempting to help. You might want to limit your initial sample, keeping in mind that you could be hacked at any point. The population of working “homeless” is a growing problem in our country and our communities do need to respond. We can’t allow people to scare us off with “hot button” words like “socialism”.

      … ‘hack risk’ with access to bank accounts –> I thought the exact same thing. *Even* with direct deposit, that company can still access your money, so you’d better make sure you trust that company:

      1) that they themselves are trustworthy, and

      2) that their employees aren’t stupid by opening inconspicuous-looking hacking links within their work emails, which then can infiltrate the company’s data bases containing ALL their customers’ and contacts’ information. If you have direct deposit set up, the hackers have even more information on you.

      Does anyone know a way around this risk, other than not setting up direct deposit?

    The gig economy is due to companies not wanting to pay benefits like healthcare or retirement.
    Just one of the many many reasons that we need universal healthcare.

    What about the trillion Trump’s tax scam added to the deficit?

  17. The essential problem is that labor is sen as a commodity, not as neighbors or people. Humanity is the character trait missing in the 1%.

  18. DITCH the Under Armor branded shirt! Under Armor = WHITE NATIONALIST uniform clothing.

    Whoa! You want access to my bank account so you can see where my money comes from? I don’t think so. What are your security and privacy policies and real firewalls to protect me? Also, I thought the GIG Ecomony was what Gen Y wanted. Not to be tied to anything.
