So THAT’S why I was ‘gifting’ my entire neighborhood for a while at the end of last year, the driver’s were mad probably.
So this is why people aren’t getting their packages!
Amazon to pay $61 million for tapping into tips promised to drivers
By Lesley Fair
A lot has been said about changes to the marketplace spurred by the gig economy, but some things remain constant, including established truth-in-advertising principles. Amazon told delivery drivers in its Amazon Flex program – as well as customers who placed orders through services like Prime Now and AmazonFresh – that 100% of tips would go directly to the drivers. But according to an FTC lawsuit, for a period of more than two years, Amazon secretly pocketed over $61 million of those tips. The FTC has announced a proposed settlement that will hold the company to its promises by returning the entire $61.7 million to Amazon Flex drivers.
