    Welp. This is so sad.

    "For Ashley Vincent, a single mom in Binghamton, New York, delivering for DoorDash often requires some negotiation with her seven-year-old son. "We can go out tonight but you can only do six deliveries," he'll say. "

    7 year olds should be outside playing not doing deliveries every night!! Our country really needs to figure out childcare, it shouldn't cost 30k a year.

    I don't really see a problem with bringing your kid along to deliver food, except for the fact that you poor kid is going to be stuck in a car for hours everyday.

      Plus you know they’ll eat some of your fries.

    Probably not nearly as much as for people drivers.  I mean drivers who drive people instead of food.

    I assume the companies don’t mind kids being in the car while they deliver food. With passengers that’d be troublesome.

      Well, except that it’s horrendous for the children.  Those poor souls. And not to mention dangerous.
