Think you’re tipping your driver when you give a tip through DoorDash? Think again!
On my first DoorDash shift, a lunch run in Brooklyn, I learned about the company’s interesting tipping policy.
DoorDash offers a guaranteed minimum for each job. For my first order, the guarantee was $6.85 and the customer, a woman in Boerum Hill who answered the door in a colorful bathrobe, tipped $3 via the app. But I still received only $6.85.
Here’s how it works: If the woman in the bathrobe had tipped zero, DoorDash would have paid me the whole $6.85. Because she tipped $3, DoorDash kicked in only $3.85. She was saving DoorDash $3, not tipping me.
Speaking of which, here’s a tale of a serial Republican sexual harasser and Son of Nino, our next Labor Secretary:
The casino of GOP megadonor & billionaire Steve Wynn did not want to let its blackjack dealers, paid min. wage, keep their tips.
The court disagreed. So Wynn brought in Eugene Scalia — now Trump's pick for Labor Secretary — to get the ruling reversedhttps://t.co/wRcdrvTQ2s— Jeff Stein (@JStein_WaPo) July 21, 2019
