The delivery apps arrived a while ago to make our lives more comfortable, especially during the confinement of the last year. According to a study by Fintonic , in Mexico the demand for Rappi increased by 62.8% and UberEats by 17.38% between May 2019 and 2020. This is because it was not allowed to be in restaurants or people were afraid to go out. Yes, these applications made it easier for us to consume food, but at a high cost for restaurants and delivery men.
In early June 2021 an UberEats deliveryman in the United States posted a TikTok expressing his frustration with his job. Account that he drove for an hour so that they gave him a tip of 1.19 dollars to which the application added 2 more dollars (the sum of both equals approximately 62 Mexican pesos). “That is not even enough to cover the gas. How am I supposed to survive like this? ”Says Smithson Michael in his video.
