I am so broken by @instacart that it's almost hard to describe. After two years with this platform, and after over 1000 shops I was summarily deactivated three days ago. It is my ONLY source of income.

My initial devastation has been replaced by pure shock at the treatment I have received since.

I was informed of my deactivation through a form letter email that did not outline a specific problem, but asked me to defend against it anyway in the single appeal I was allowed.
I begged them repeatedly to explain why I was deactivated and what specific charge I was defending against, but I received only a single response that said my appeal was denied and their decision was final. It was in that letter that they finally told me what I had done wrong.

YO LOS ANGELES. Instacart is overwhelmed. So they are asking people to comply with assanine “security” protocals and freezing accounts of new/low dollar customers #Instacart #instacartFAIL
I ordered through through instacart for the first time last week. $100+ order from 3 stores, signed up for a trial of their $99 MEMBERSHIP SERVICE
3/ Delivery went fine. I got 2 items I didn’t ask for. Contacted them to make sure it was cool. Does that seem like a thief, a liar?

#Thread What type of bottom feeding media attacks educators during a pandemic? The same one that wished a #HurricaneKatrina on #CPS. I’m guessing their goal is to remain on brand? #Trash #Covid19…
#NewFlash : Educators are real ppl. We’re experiencing #Covid19 like the rest of the world. Some of our immune systems are compromised. Some hv contracted it. Some are awaiting results. Many are taking care of family who’ve contracted it. Some have died. #InRealLife #Covid_19
3/ We are watching the body count increase daily. Some of us are making masks for 1st responders. Others hv cleared out their teacher cabinets & given sanitizer & soap to 1st responders. #Service #Covid_19 #InRealLife

My long promised thread on my experiences inside the on demand economy will be forth coming, but tonight's experiences working for @Instacart are illustrative of my overall experience within the industry.

This will not be a happy thread.

#Instacart #OnDemand

As I write this I am sitting in the parking lot of a Jewel/Osco grocery store on Chicago's near Northside.

I am actually praying that I will be assigned a batch (a shopping order) in the next 15 minutes (won't happen). If I don't get one I will be forced to sleep in my car.

Why that is true will be partially explained here, but a more in-depth answer will follow with the larger thread.

But let's start here:

Today I was trying to decide how best to divide my time among the 3 major on-demand companies I work for; it's never an easy decision.
