1099 SNOW CONTRACTORS' (SHOVELERS) SUMMARY: 

Seeking Shovelers to clear snow from townhouses, businesses, and trapped cars primarily in central Brooklyn, using our app. Before each forecast storm, Shovelers have the opportunity to opt-in to clear snow from 4-8 nearby locations (a typical property takes one person, 30 minutes). This is great for Rideshare drivers, paraprofessionals, the temporarily unemployed (running out of unemployment), contractors, students, residents of Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Bushwick, Williamsburg, East Flatbush, East New York, or Brownsville.

CUSTOMER EXPECTATIONS FOR SHOVELERS

CONTRACTOR PAYMENT: $40 - $400 (per property)

Foot Soldiers share 40% of each property's revenue with Shovelers according to fee structures determined by the property's size, amount of snow, and time of day. Some properties are eligible for a 50% share payment (e.g., because the Job was at night, between 8 p.m. and - 5:59 a.m. EST, OR on a federally recognized holiday). Shovelers also receive 100% of electronic tips that are optionally paid by customers.
