“Skilled labor, like automotive repair, requires talented workers who are experts at their craft. They need access to specialized tools and continuing education opportunities. Our mechanics are classified as employees and receive employee benefits," said RepairSmith CEO Joel Milne.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 16, 2019
RepairSmith, a new at-home car repair and maintenance service that launched last month, supports Assembly Bill 5, the new bill passed by California’s legislature that requires gig economy workers to be reclassified as employees instead of contractors.
“RepairSmith fully supports Assembly Bill 5,” said CEO Joel Milne. "Originally, gig work was designed to be a source of supplemental income, which is useful and appropriate to a degree, but not when people are essentially working full-time hours and especially not when dealing with skilled workers. Yet, the success of companies like Uber and DoorDash has created a trend that permeates other industries, including our own. We strongly disagree with this.
“Skilled labor, like automotive repair, requires talented workers who are experts at their craft. They need access to specialized tools and continuing education opportunities. Our mechanics are classified as employees and receive employee benefits including healthcare and paid vacation. After all, this is not supplemental income for them; it’s their career and livelihood.”
RepairSmith is focused on delivering the easiest at-home car repair experience while partnering with hard-working, qualified mechanics that are compensated fairly for their expertise. The company provides all the necessary tools in custom-outfitted company vehicles. RepairSmith believes home delivery services can be brought to customers without cutting corners by paying solely ‘by the gig.’
