As announced through the Financial Times, Uber will launch a new app in Chicago that will connect temporary workers to job opportunities.

The new business unit will be called Uber Works and will begin operating in Chicago after being tested in Los Angeles.

The platform aims to help blue collar workers without having to re-enter their credentials every time they apply for a new job.

Uber will partner with staffing companies such as TrueBlue, one of the largest in industrial staffing in the United States.

The giant said that the goal is to “eliminate bottlenecks when finding work” and that users will be able see information such as payments, skills requirements and dress code for potential jobs.

Uber Works could compete with groups like Wonolo, an on-demand staffing platform launched 5 years ago driven by venture capital firms Bain Capital and Sequoia.
