Did you guys read about this??? Apparently, food delivery services are paying literal pennies to their drivers/shoppers?? Is this even legal? Is this common in the industry? Does Uber Eats, Grubhub, Postmates, Caviar do this too?

      It's ignorant to support the company, just don't use them. Simple.

      That's fine, but it's still ignorant to say "the driver is choosing this life". You can disagree with the practice of tipping and businesses taking advantage of it, but often the people being taken advantage of don't have a lot of choices.

      I called you out for your entitled mindset. Love how you try to hit back with "ignorant to support the company". Nice try!

      You are in a damn at will employment state. They actively choose to be a delivery driver for these companies. There is no slavery or a wage slavery going on.

      If your argument ends at calling me entitled you haven't solved any actual problems. All you're doing is complaining that there is a problem.

      If you're "forced" to take this job that's your choice to play the game.

      It's capitalism at it's finest. If someone is willing to do the work for that little then that's what the work is worth. Until it's realized that the workers control the acceptable wages then we're going to have this cycle.

      I work in tech sales but deliver food for Postmates for "fun" . I'm guaranteed a minimum of 4$ per delivery and then tips on top of that. They pick up the slack if the distance or wait time doesn't equate to 4$ per delivery.

      Yes I make 6 figures plus and have a 50 hour a work week. So they isn't much incentive for me to do it. But let's just say I like making money while exercising

      You ever heard of inflation? I’m guessing you aren’t an economics major.

      Why tip? For better service. You see while I tip...you wait. Get it?

      I will always tip. You can’t stop me...and that is essentially your problem.

      Service industry people will always appreciate this.

      I’m not clear though why so many people are recommending such outlandish and unrealistic solutions that will never happen.
      Feb 10
    • Square / EngSQ
      The point of tipping is that minimum wage isn't the same as it was before. You said you were on minimum wage when it was $4.25. Back then you could live off of minimum wage from one job. Now at $15 you cannot in SF. I dare you to actually do the math.

      It's funny - if people didn't top you realize your cost of services/goods would go up, right? People who top are artificially keeping prices lower for people who don't.

      By telling people not to tip you'll whine when prices raise because they have to pay their employees more.

      Spoiler: if you can't afford to tip, you shouldn't be eating out/getting delivery/whatever.
      Feb 11
    • Northrop Grumman / EngCrypt0
      @SQ, let them increase prices. Why do you even bother sticking up for these businesses. Tips are included in every meal in other countries lol and it is totally fine and service is still great. You don't even get public shaming and saying workers will spit in your food. Only in America.. and I'd rather the worker pay taxes on their tips too. Got to support taxation no matter which level of income you are
      Feb 11
    • Overstock.com dvaN82
      @crypt0 .....sticking up for these businesses? Have you ever valet parked your car? Why would you not tip that young person for working hard? It’s a nice friendly gesture at the very least. That’s outside of the fact that it’s simply been around since people have been parking cars.

      Same goes for tending bar, waiting tables and many other service industry jobs within our culture. I get what you are saying but it’s not valid in most instances.

      In others I think there is some validity but in most of those we will see automation playing a much bigger role long term.

      @saghoo and everyone else
      Correct me if I am wrong but, I don’t think some people understand is that min wage is different for people in some jobs because it’s natural and it’s also been tradition that the consumer tips.

      “Under federal law, restaurants are required to pay delivery drivers $2.13 per hour if they utilize the tip credit, though gratuities must push each driver over the $7.25 federal minimum wage. In the event that the $7.25 hourly rate is not met on a workweek basis, an employer must make up the difference.”

      So generally speaking ...I show up with your pizza making 2.13 thinking you are going to tip me but you think I make 7.25 and believe tipping is not your responsibility.

      Maybe this is why we keep going back and forth?

      There is the problem , why would I have to give money to someone just for doing their job. They’re hired to do so

      And as you said , you cannot stop me from not tipping 🤷‍♂️

      You guys literally sound like someone in a cucked relationship trying to justify why they’re doing the right thing

      It’s abusive dude , make the restaurants pay what’s fair for labor , it works everywhere else, why not here
      Feb 11
    • @dvaN82 “Why tip? For better service”

      Did you even read my post above?

      I mentioned that there are many countries such as Singapore and Japan where tipping is looked down and yet the service is top notch compared to the US. Even in some poorer countries like Indonesia, you get better service without tipping.

      Do you have study that show that tipping WILL equal better service?

      Go to Chick-fil-a or In-n-Out or talk to the employees (and ex-employees). They don’t get tips but they provide top notch service and generally are happier. Their work is more demanding too compared to the server. Try standing in front of the grill, running around making food and shakes for 7 hours (1 hour is for lunch, break, etc). Server don’t make the food, so they don’t stand in front of the grill.

      So my recommendation is the same: increase the server wage from $2 to $15 hour plus benefit and abolish tipping.

      Tipping actually reduce wage, since companies like DoorDash can pay their gig-worker next to nothing and have the consumer pay the difference.

      The federal laws that allow min wage of $2.13 for worker that receive tips need to be abolished, just like back when min wage was $4.25. Today, many states have min wage that is equal to $10 or more. Some cities like SF have $15 min wage and even mandate healthcare.

      But like you said, you’ll keep tipping and no one is going to stop you. That’s not the intent here. We’re discussing why the tipping culture should be changed for the good of the worker.

    • Northrop Grumman / EngCrypt0
      @dvaN82: tip for better service? That's bull shit. They should be doing great service regardless! What is a job?? They do their job, they get paid. They do bad job, they should be fired. Workers with good ratings from customers get bonuses. This will encourage customers to give rewards through reviews on good workers. Not be encouraged to do a better job to get good tip... Stop trying to support business and brain washing people to tip to subsidize workers pay. Read deaths post! He makes good points about chick fila and In n out workers. They have good pay and benefits. They always have excellent service without tip because they already get paid well by the business!

      @death: exactly! I love in n out. Always Excellent service. They don't get tip, but the employee get good pay and benefits package.

    The tipping culture is a crazy idea in its entirety. Tipping should be totally optional. If you’re happy with your server, pay a tip, otherwise just don’t. Servers/dispatchers frowning upon people who pay a low tip is kinda crazy. I was a student once and was not financially stable to afford a tip; still had to give it. The CEOs and businesses who make servers depend on tips instead of a regular paycheck are the ones who should be frowned upon. Death to the fuckin tipping culture.

    The race to monetize a viable "gig economy" marketplace ignores the basic fact that maybe... Just maybe... There's a reason these areas were never "things" before. And maybe they aren't exactly economically viable!

    I give you Uber... If the vc's weren't heavily subsidizing each and every ride... They all would be out of business. I love the service... And quite frankly we need that with taxis. But there's a reason private cars cost what they do... And why taxis cost what they do. Years from now Uber will be seen as it is... A false construct that bankrupted taxi drivers all over the place... Robbed cities of tax revenue, created streets that were demonstrably less safe and wreaked havoc on local traffic and urban planning.

      Sarcasm notwithstanding... The damage that has been done to the economy is going to be studied for years. Disruption is great... But companies pretending to be a real viable business and doing so at a colossal loss for years is exactly how businesses ARE NOT supposed to exist.

      Don't get me wrong... I love the services... But I'm not blind to the damage being done to the economy.

      And how vigorously Uber is fighting to NOT have to play under the same rules.

      Uber is a marketplace that connects the service providers with those who need the service. It does so efficiently within the SLA expectations of the consumers. Much more so than existing options. That's a sustainable business model.

      I agree with you that subsidising the service provider-consumer match is a losing idea. I assume the Uber management understands this as well. Their solution seems to be to find even more efficiency and some profits when operating at scale. The two ways Uber seems to be trying to achieve profitable scale is via higher service provider acquisition and higher service demand. These efforts pay out in the longer term when the cost of acquisition becomes less. As long as the operating cost is not being subsidized, there's a chance of making a profit.

Many of these businesses didn't exist as there was no sustainable or more importantly PROFITABLE path. And the promise of success has sent people flocking to them. And then after 6 months of losing their shirts... Realize that this was a bad idea.

      Not saying that isn't so. Clearly the world of opportunities is vast. But just like the heady days off the original valley bubble we are seeing totally untenable business models getting vast amounts of money thrown at them by vc's who go mental when they hear gig economy in a pitch deck.

      Haha. True that. They made billions and are now so eager to get rid of the evil green. Give them enough time and they'll start planting tulips 🌷🌷🌷 😂😏

      I don’t think he is mad. More like fed up with idiots that want to work in tech and don’t know a damn thing about the movement to create a better place to live. Instead, let’s build yet another food delivery app so we can feed our fat faces.

      We appreciate your contribution.

    Theres guaranteed earnings on batches less than $10. Problem came when batch was say $6, customer tips $6, instacart would keep the $4 and only give $2 to you and apply that $4 to raise the batch min. Basically like the restaurant industry.

    Changes were made though, now 100% of tips go to shoppers without batch adjustment and all adjusted tips are being back payed to shoppers.

      Here lies the problem. It’s not a tip at that point: and we have claimed 100% tip goes to the shopper. The restaurant industry never takes the tips and adjusts your hourly salary on it.

    Regular restaurants have to pay the federal minimum hourly wage to their waiters if they don't get enough tips. But it looks like Doordash managed to find a loophole in this law, so this happens.
    Strange that some people think that it is a good unicorn-startup.

    Worked for an on-demand food delivery company. We did the same thing. Sadly it made me no longer trust tipping in any app.

    I drove for GrubHub for a bit before I landed a tech job. They guaranteed only $11 an hour based on performance within their app. The only way I ever made more than that was through tips.

      Same reason that so many lost their shirts and left Uber etc... They saw the promise of a shiny thing in the distance. But over time realized that it was not shiny but a glare... And it was actually getting farther away all the time

      They work there because it's one of the few jobs that you can work flexible hours. They like that even though the pay isn't high

      It's not nuts. But it is out of control. In the us, FOOD SERVICE WORKERS have a minimum wage of about 2.60$/hour. Worth the assumption that tips make up the living wage. So the 15%...20%... That is what the actual cost is.

      The crappy part is that it's carried through to everywhere else.

      But the us overall is a fucked up system

    So you pay 10% of your bill as operating cost. And then add the delivery fees (range 0-4.99) and the tip. That’s just ridiculous.

      Enter .22 then tip in cash or change the tip to a real one after you get the delivery the open order is marked as sent on the app.

      They do not know the tip before order is done. I always do 0 tip.

    Door dash does $5 per delivery and they have bonus pay during high volume times (usually lunch and dinner times). And then the tips too. That's one reason I only use that app. Cause they pay the drivers along with my tip.

      Restaurants don’t go out of their way to say “100% of your tip goes to the dasher.”

    Glad this is finally being raised as an issue. Been driving on the side for half a year and they pretty much use tips as your income.
