The Unfiltered Reality of Food Delivery

The anonymous food delivery rider took to social media to unveil the less glamorous side of the gig economy. With two screenshots displaying the earnings for two separate orders – a mere $2.00 and $1.06 – the rider aimed to provide fellow netizens with an unfiltered view of the financial struggles associated with the job.

Accompanying the screenshots, the rider expressed the sentiment that “some days are better, some days are worse,” capturing the unpredictable nature of earnings in the food delivery sector. The post sought to challenge preconceived notions that food delivery riders have a straightforward and lucrative job.

Netizens’ comments

  1. Money was good a few years ago when they were in a stage of growth. Now the market has saturated, VC money drying out and folks are going back to office, it is inevitable.
  2. Recently got 1 woman say she making 8K just doing food delivery part-time work😎
  3. I could very easily earn 100/day back in 2021. Now, if I bag 80/day on a weekend that’s considered good already
  4. It should never have been treated as a full time job just a supplementary. Furthermore, not all orders look like this.
  5. Eventually it will collapse under its own weight since the business model and structure was artificially inflated during the pandemic and they thought or rather it’s much better for corporate guys to sell a beautiful picture than being pessimistic and cautious to stakeholders.
    Lazada and many other tech companies is an example.
    However, food delivery has become so integrated it still has value in business. So I don’t see this industry completely dying but it’s changing for sure.
  6. Ya. Saw a guy earn ard 3-4k with food delivery also. But the grind is tedious ofc
