Instacart workers demanding new protections and better pay amid the COVID-19 global pandemic. As millions of consumers turn to online retailers at a time of stay-at-home orders, workers say their employers aren't taking enough precautions to protect them on the job. Last week some workers for grocery delivery app Instacart began a nationwide strike demanding hazard pay.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the protests is Washington Post Technology and Culture Reporter Nitasha Tiku.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
