Hey Michel,

I’m following up on a new data study around the sharing economy and the
challenges on-demand drivers face.

As more people turn to the sharing economy for employment, Runzheimer data
<https://www.runzheimer.com/resources/sharing-economy-report> found that
almost half (48%) of gig economy drivers have reported driving for their
ridesharing company while on-the-clock for their full-time, non-sharing
economy job.

With a constantly changing workplace and growing number of remote
employees, modern workers are taking advantage of flexible policies,
earning two paychecks at once.

Let me know if you’re interested in a copy of the full report or would like
to speak with a Runzheimer executive.

Hi Michel,

As Uber gears up for another class-action lawsuit in its pursuit of lenient
workplace standards, 61% of sharing economy drivers are continuing to pay
for a portion, if not all, of their vehicle maintenance and repairs.

Since the majority of ride-hailing services classify its workers as
independent contractors, sharing economy employees aren’t granted
government-mandated wage standards, overtime pay or proper reimbursement

A Runzheimer study
<https://www.runzheimer.com/resources/sharing-economy-report> released
today surveyed adults who actively drive for sharing economy companies,
delving into how sharing economy brands reimburse and compensate drivers,
as well as drivers’ perceptions of their allowances and benefits.

Key findings include:

   - Almost half (48%) of all drivers have logged miles for their sharing
   economy gig while on the clock for their full-time, non-sharing economy job
   - 89% of sharing economy drivers track their on-the-job mileage, but the
   majority (72%) of this group do so manually, or using generic solutions
   - 93% of sharing economy drivers feel they would have more time to spend
   working if their employer offered tools that made it easier to track mileage

I’m happy to share a PDF version of the full report and put you in touch
with Austin Klein from Runzheimer to discuss the study’s findings in-depth.
