That wage will rise to $20 an hour by 2025. Delivery worker advocates celebrated the ruling, claiming it puts them “one step closer” to earning a living wage for their work. New York C …

I have to say that I count myself among the latter; I usually listen to rather than watch my music, and I didn’t find the YouTube Music interface any kind of improvement. Now, as is its wont, Google has decided to drop yet another of its apps and instead add those features to …
