PART 1 won't be ordering from door dash anytime soon #doordash #doordashdriver
In the US, DoorDash delivery drivers earn a base wage of between $2 and $10 an hour, calculated based on a number of factors including demand, time and distance. In July, drivers went on strike demanding a higher base pay.
Drivers are also expected to cover their own petrol, insurance and vehicle maintenance, as well as any parking or driving costs incurred while doing their job.
TikTok users began debating in the comments about the incident, with some understanding the driver’s anger over the system.
One person sided with the driver, writing: “That’s his time and money being thrown away.”
Another reasoned: “Y’all ever have a bad day and then one small thing just makes you lose it? I feel like that is what this was.”
But, others felt the driver was overreacting and accused them of “throwing a tantrum”.
At this time, DoorDash is unable to confirm whether the person heard in the clip was one of their delivery drivers.
A spokesperson for DoorDash told indy100: “All members of the DoorDash community are expected to treat one another with respect, and the behaviour in this video is very concerning. We are actively investigating this and will take all appropriate action.”
