My oldest son just landed a position with a major pizza manufacturing and transportation corporation. Ok, he is working for Domino’s Pizza. He is excited about the prospect of learning the business in hopes of opening his own franchise someday.
During his hiring process, he learned of his pay scale. If he is inside the store, making pizzas, he earns one rate of pay. If he is out delivering pizzas, he makes a lower rate, but gets to keep his tips.
This was news to me. I figured the drivers at Domino’s were independent contractors, much like newspaper carriers. I assumed (wrongly) that drivers made a little profit on each pizza they delivered. So, I never felt bad about not tipping the driver.
