Cafe bans UberEATS, calling food delivery platform ‘incredibly exploitative’

A SYDNEY cafe has said it will refuse any more orders through UberEATS, claiming the organisation is “incredibly exploitative” and makes it virtually impossible to turn a profit.

UberEATS, along with rivals Foodora, Deliveroo and Menulog, are part of the growing industry of on-demand food delivery, where customers order from restaurants and cafes through apps with orders then brought to their door by freelance cycle couriers.

The refusal of Petty Cash Cafe, in Sydney’s inner west, to work with UberEATS comes as the Transport Workers Union (TWU) claimed three out of four food delivery drivers were being paid less than the minimum wage.
