The custom of tipping has faced increasing , especially in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic. The crux of the argument is that tips, while beneficial to customers and businesses, often place an unfair burden on workers, particularly delivery drivers.

Delivery Drivers’ Pay

A significant number of Domino's drivers report that tips constitute a substantial part of their income. Hence, the absence of tips can have real consequences, such as high staff turnover. It's worth noting that in as many as 43 states, the remuneration of delivery drivers is directly related to the tips they receive. This allows employers to pay their drivers a federal “subminimum wage”, which is as low as .13 per hour.
