The quarantine imposed in March 2020 shed light on the essential labour performed by digital delivery platforms’ workers and their precarious labour conditions. In order to protect them, seven draft bills were proposed to Congress in Argentina, oscillating between a salaried/independent classifi-cation of these workers. This article uses qualitative and quantitative data to analyse how these regulatory proposals deal with three dimensions that are at the center of workers’ own concerns when it comes to the regulation of the activity: the preservation of flexible schedules, the continuity of income self-regulation – even though this often means overworking – and the need to access effectively social protection – where the absence of occupational hazards insu-rance stands out.
