Why is the Gig Economy and Sexual Assaults a Problem?

Both Uber and Lift have dealt with thousands of sexual assault cases, both companies have taken an aggressive stance to correct their corporate cultures to avoid this happening to future customers. Other gig platforms like the Handyman gig economy does not appear ready to accept their responsivity in the sexual assault that could occur when a Handyman enters your home. The Handyman gig platform is a billion dollar industry that is only concerned with their bottom line and not the true safety of their female customers. The much more intimate nature of this gig service, in home handyman, compared to the offered rideshare would make one believe that such companies would drive to offer a true safe product and warnings to their customers. Until they are held accountable by their customers they will continue to use the excuses in law and otherwise when their customers are sexually assaulted.
