I took a job delivering cannabis, because I thought it would be an easy way to make money.
I was working at the grocery store in the dairy department and I was making minimum wage.
I knew the tips delivering cannabis would be better, so I changed jobs. Unfortunately, the delivery zone is so large that I’m only breaking even at the end of the night. Last week I had to take two different deliveries to the outskirts of town. One delivery took an hour and 15 minutes and I got a $5 tip. The other delivery took 50 minutes and I got a $10 tip. I spent nearly three hours on the road to make two deliveries and I made $8 an hour. Minimum wage in this state is $15 an hour, so I’m losing money by working as a delivery driver. The dispensary will have to change his policy and make the delivery area smaller. It’s the only way to ensure delivery times and allow all of the drivers to make money when they are scheduled. It’s certainly not fair to send me out onto one hour long deliveries, while another guy stays in town and takes 15 items to the college for $100 in tips. Some customers complain about the long wait times as well, and a smaller delivery zone would take care of that issue as well. If we’re going to advertise fast delivery services, then we’re going to have to do something about the delivery problems. This is one way to fix the problem for good without changing much.
