If the category of gig workers have no protection, it is for them to make appropriate representation to the State Government. We are sure that if such a representation is made, the State Government will consider the same expeditiously in accordance with the law”, observed a division bench comprising Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna. Advocate Ayantika Mondal, party-in-person had argued that “While regular employees in the private sector of the IT based platforms enjoy protection of laws, gig workers, who are key contributors to the functioning of the IT based platforms have been denied protection of any statute or any scheme of the Government.” The plea prayed for issuance of a writ of mandamus enjoining the State Government to enact a statute for protection of the gig workers. Also, for directing the State Government to issue necessary directions by framing guidelines to ensure that the companies running IT platforms and aggregated companies pay salaries to registered gig workers. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna said “To enable the State Government to issue such directions/guidelines, a specific statutory power must vest in the State Government. Counsel is unable to point out the existence of any such statutory power. Therefore, we are unable to issue a writ of mandamus as prayed for.”   Title: Ayantika Mondal And State of Karnataka Case No: Writ Petition No 6757/2020 Coram: Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna  Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more


Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Welcomes Revivalists Horns At Rowdy Bonnaroo Set [Watch]


first_imgOver the weekend, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong hit the famed Manchester, Tennessee music festival, Bonnaroo, laying out a truly on-point performance in That Tent from 1 am to 2:30 am. The Baltimore-based jam and funk act pulled out all the stops for the special show, inviting Michael Girardot and Rob Ingraham, trumpet and tenor sax players for The Revivalists, out for portions of the show. The rowdy crowd, in turn, lapped up the set, with the audience spilling out well beyond the tent and singing and clapping along throughout.As Greg Ormont told Live For Live Music about the performance,Bonnaroo is the ultimate hang! After raging our late night set in front of a sea of people, we kicked it for the weekend and caught some great acts that we don’t usually see in the jam circuit like Pond, Anderson .Paak, Nile Rodgers, Reggie Watts, Thundercat, Muse, Eminem, The Revivalists, Ikebe Shakedown, Gogo Penguin, and tons more. We’re all leaving Bonnaroo super inspired to keep writing new music and pursuing our dreams. Much respect to the entire Bonnaroo team for making such a huge event run so smoothly. We know it takes a ton of work and they really knocked it out of the park.As for the show itself, one of the biggest highlights was the presence of The Revivalists’ horns, who added a little something special to the already-energetic performance. The duo of Girardot and Ingraham sat in from “The Liquid” through “Whoopie”, later reemerging for “F.U.” and “Doc”. Other highlights included in the “Space Jam” that led into “The Hop” and “F.U.”, which saw Ben Carrey and Alex Petropulos really open up.You can check out the setlist from Pigeon Playing Ping Pong’s high-octane Bonnaroo performance below. Plus, don’t miss the band’s Bonnaroo recap video, which was created by David Diller of Ninja Video and which Live For Live Music is proud to premiere and host on our YouTube channel.Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Bonnaroo | Manchester, TN | 5/8/2018Porcupine, Somethin’ For Ya > Julia > Under The Sea > Julia, The Liquid*, Whoopie* > 1999* > Whoopie*, Spacejam > The Hop > F.U.*, Doc*, Horizon, Ocean Flows*w/ Rob Ingraham on Sax and Michael Girardot on Trumpet from The Revivalistslast_img read more
