Over the past more than five months, a lot of people have complained about the fact that delivery drivers don’t earn minimum wage, but every one of us have been earning $8 an hour, because every one of us also make tips, and that is the same wage as a waitress or a server! On a slow evening with disappointing weather, the tips might not equal minimum wage plus that means some of us are toiling for peanuts.
The employees complained to the manager plus brought up the troubles during the bi-weekly staff meeting.
The owner told the manager that she would take our complications into account. I entirely did not think that every one of us would see more money, because minimum wage is $13 an hour plus that is a immense pay jump for someone that isn’tpaying much at all. To my surprise, the owner of the dispensary told almost everyone that the delivery drivers will beginning earning minimum wage on the first of next month. There are a couple of things that are going to change, but none of them are anything major. All of the delivery women are not responsible for stocking shelves before they can leave at the end of the evening. The women have to work every weekend in order to qualify for the higher pay rate. The only way the owner could get the wage approved from the investors is to use the higher wage as an increased bonus for toiling every weekendâ€¦ You get more money if you sacrifice your weekends. If you ask me, the pay raise has a lot more positive aspects than disadvantage aspects.
