NYC minimum wage for delivery workers stayed by judge

From the Washington Post, reports that a judge has delayed a rule that would have established minumum rates for food delivery gig workers. Eli writes”

Food delivery drivers in New York City won’t be getting an $18 an hour minimum wage next week as they had hoped.

A New York state judge on Friday stayed a rule that would require food ordering apps to pay delivery workers the new wage. The order comes one day after Uber, DoorDash and Grubhub sued to block the law from going into effect on July 12.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Nicholas Moyne ruled that the wage measure cannot take effect before July 31 oral arguments on a temporary injunction. The New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection, named as a defendant in the lawsuits, has until July 24 to submit relevant documents.
