Work Today is a new labor marketplace that connects blue-collar workers to jobs in Los Angeles, all via SMS.
Work Today helps blue-collar workers in CA (and soon, Mexico) find consistent work, while businesses can book and pay blue-collar workers instantly through the platform.
As you probably know, there are some 55M blue-collar workers in the US looking for work in a $134B+ market. There is no technology platform focused on the giant blue-collar market — only the Home Depot parking lot, or inefficient brick-and-mortar staffing agencies who take a cut of workers’ pay.
Work Today has been in stealth mode since launching last summer: they have 50,000 workers on the platform, are growing 30% MOM, and have matched over 150,000 jobs in the LA area.
Work Today raised $1.1M from Social Capital, Mucker Capital, CSC Group and currently raising $2M with all our investors taking their pro rata rights.
