Scammers have been spoofing Target's delivery company Shipt's phone number in order to steal its gig workers' earnings by phishing their credentials from them.
Target's delivery app Shipt claims that the new pay model will compensate its 200,000 delivery workers based on "effort." But in cities where the model has already taken effect, workers claim their wages have fallen by 15-50 percent.
On Wednesday, the day of the work stoppage, Shipt will expand a blackbox pay model that workers say will hurt their earnings.
The Target-owned grocery delivery company Shipt is rolling out a new algorithmic pay model that is already draining paychecks. And workers are terrified to speak out.
