Facts & Figures

The position of self-employed meal deliverers has gotten worst in recent years. In particular, the position of Deliveroo and Uber Eats riders.

The bogus construction with self-employed riders creates uncertainty about work and income.

  • Total all 5.000 riders: €27,5 million per year
