Gig workers eligible for unemployment benefits under US stimulus bill

A part of the Senate’s historic $2 trillion stimulus package makes it possible for gig workers to apply for unemployment benefits. Additionally, the bill would provide $600 per week in federal assistance for unemployed workers for up to four months. This is good news for workers of Uber, Lyft and DoorDash. Earlier, Uber CEO wrote to President Trump asking him to include gig workers in the bill.

this is huge, since no one can get around, it makes the Gig economy's options limited. can't spend much until the Stimulus hits. then it might be OK, for a while.
