The Seattle City Council passed a law to guarantee that app-based delivery drivers earn over $26 per hour, before tips, plus additional pay for mileage. This new rate is well above the City of Seattle’s minimum wage.

Proponents of this misguided policy claim it will protect app-based workers. But in practice, it will harm them as it has resulted in higher costs and fewer delivery orders.
