Hey, can I just say, because capitalist propaganda is so hard to unlearn:
If you have a job, any kind of job at all, I'm so proud of you. This shit is hard. Working, period, is hard.
And if you don't have a job? That doesn't make you lesser than the people who do have one.
We all deserve the same level of respect as human beings. Capitalism fails to uphold what should be a law of human rights.
Bottom line, your tip helps your driver keep their head (barely) above water. If you tip at a sit-down restaurant*, tip your delivery driver.
*if you're in the US and don't tip at sit-down restaurants, I don't want to know you.**
**this is not the place to debate tipping in the face of poor service. I still don't want to know you. Leave a note with the tip or talk to a manager about why you're unhappy.
Ever wonder what your delivery driver is making? Here's an example from Orange County, California.
Note that time and mileage from accepting the order to reaching the pick up point is *not* compensated.
Also note that delays are almost *never* your driver's fault; the longer it takes to get your order to you, the more eats into their per-hour earnings.
