I worked at one place where they paid drivers $5 an hour, but all drivers did was drive. We didn’t answer the phones, we didn’t sweep or mop, we didn’t make boxes. We sat in our cars and waited for orders to get dispatched to us. Some people might balk at that for $5 an hour, but for $6 an hour I have to do all of the stuff above and more. Getting that extra dollar an hour isn’t worth it to me. I’d much rather get $5 and sit in my car. It just makes more sense since we’re getting screwed on gas and a decent wage for risking our lives for a pizza.
