RE: Stay at Home Gig Mom

My daughter also doesn't like me being away from home, now I'm working. She's 19 now, though. 😆 It is a shock to the system when they've been used to you always being there all their lives.

I've always heard that these deliveries don't pay well, which is why I've never looked into it here (we usually pay $5 AUS for delivery and depending on the distance I would guess they may only be able to fit 3-4 deliveries into one hour. Minimum wage is $24 an hour for casual workers). For the first time I'm seeing how the US tradition for tipping can help out here. We don't have that, though.

Seriously, in the screenshot shared there are more tips than the service payment. In my country, I have never heard of tipping.

In the UK and Australia we use tips as a thank you for especially good service. It's basically a gift of a small amount of extra money on top of the required costs, but we don't often give tips and they aren't expected. In the US it seems to have become almost a requirement to tip, because many people working in serving jobs don't earn a living wage from the pay, so tips make up for a lot of their income. Judging by the screenshot, though, it seems tips are actually the main part of the pay.

Quite informative. It means the tradition and social behaviours have an immense effect on how much a particular work may bring to the table

Yes, tipping makes up the majority of a Dasher’s income. Without tipping it wouldn't be worth doing this service.

Hahaha even the teenagers want their mommy's 🤣🤣🤣!! It is definitely a shock to them. My kids are always like

You're Dashing again? Will you be gone all day? You always leave forever! 🤣

How is the job going for you?

To be honest, it wouldn’t be worth Dashing without the tipping. The base pay for deliverers is between $2.50 and maybe $8.50. The tips make up the majority of our income. Thankfully most people out here do tip and they tip really well. Customers don’t have to tip but are highly encouraged to, especially those that live farther away in distance from the restaurant they’re ordering from. I’ve actually had two on the spot cash tips on top of the regular one…it was amazing.
