      What’s the point of giving a performance bonus if they’re doing what they were hired to do?

      Performance bonus needs to be given by employer, not customer.

      I’d be so happy if every user who used a feature I coded transferred money directly to me! - That’s tipping

      These drivers are independent contractors so technically aren’t we the ones employing them

      I don’t think we employ them. Also, see @Paypal’s note about gig economy further down in the thread.

    Gig economy is on rise. If I start tipping everyone who gives me lift, delivers food, serves table, gardener, newspaper boy, and on and on and on, i would end up depending on someone else’s tip for my existence.

    Stupid custom. Stupid people follow it to avoid the next guy not think bad about them.

    Same as cashier in checkout asking for donation for the cancer foundation and every time you don’t donate someone die

    • I agree it is a stupid custom but don’t fist the delivery person who is already on minimum wage. You are not making any point by not tipping. You are just stiffing a person who is struggling to make ends meet. Take it up with Uber, Instacart and Doordash management directly.

    I tip if they can follow my fucking directions and park in front of my apartment - if you can’t follow “turn left, then follow the road” kinda instructions, you don’t deserve a tip

    Reading latest news seems it doesn't matter, they get payed same either way? I feel fooled for falling for tipping just for the company to pocket more money. https://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/why-instacart-doordash-workers-don-t-always-receive-tips-you-n965926

      Yeah but how am I supposed to keep track who gives the tip directly to drivers and who pockets it. I remember Amazon Fresh the first year I used it had no tipping option in the app, then silently added it with $5 default now another year later $7 default. Does this mean the driver now makes $7 more per order or is the company using the extra money to offset their own cost...? I can't spend all my time investigating how they operate, I just want my stuff (and that the company compensates their people fairly)

      You don't have to randomly use every service out there.... 😆

      I use two. My point is I shouldn't have to figure out how these companies compensates their people..

      For the record I do tip. But after reading that article I now feel cheated how some companies use that tip to pocket more themselves.

    Why tip for the task they sign up for and are to do exactly same. May be if they go extra mile on something yes. But not doing just what they are otherwise expected
