A first-of-its-kind hub for Melbourne’s gig workers has opened in the CBD to provide amenities for a growing cohort of workers without an office.

The space provides a place to rest with a microwave, water and bike lights.

It comes after a series of high profile deaths of delivery riders in Australia this year.
