How much am I supposed to tip an UberEats driver?

Is tipping even expected for UberEats? I'm already paying the fee for the food to be delivered to me, so why should I have to pay a tip? Most of the time I order, the food shows up later than it was supposed to and it's not even warm.

    My local Domino's charge delivery fee.  I think it was like $1.50 or $2.50 or something...but we are expected to tip on top of that.

    I tip like...round it to the next 5, kind of thing?  I don't tip 15~20% though. That'd be disrespectful to the waitors/waitress, I think.

    Is tipping even expected when you order a pizza from Dominos or Pizza Hut?  You're already paying a fee for the food to be delivered, and the driver already receives a salary and other compensation for delivering your meal...

    Is tipping even expected when you go to a restaurant?  You're already paying for the food, and the wait staff is receiving a salary and benefits...

    Unlike the above, your UberEats driver doesn't receive any of the delivery fee you paid, has no benefits, and only receives a small per mile/minute fee.  Your driver doesn't make the food, they just answer the call to pick it up when you're hungry.  Things may have changed since I quit UberEats, but generally, Eats drivers make between half and 3/4 of the minimum wage in your area, and about 1/3 of what drivers make.

    Who is to blame for your food being cold?  Possibly the resturant you ordered from for not preparing teh food quickly.  Possibly Uber for not having enough delivery staff to keep up with demand.  Most probably , however, the fault lies with the person ordering for not taking care of their driver during prior deliveries.  If you're rude, complain a lot and don't tip, everybody elses dinner gets delivered before yours. 

    Want warm food?  Learn to cook, pick up your food yourself, or try being nice to delivery staff and tip.

      LOL. Your initial examples made me wonder if you were FOR or AGAINST tipping UberEats. 

      Yeah, these delivery peeps need to be paid.  ....if we want them to keep working.  ....if we want food delivery to still exist in two years.  Let's not ruin a good thing here, guys.

    I think it's the same as Uber / Lyft regular drivers, right?
