…Hey, $17.50 doesn’t sound too shabby, right? But that calculation doesn’t take into account drivers’ expenses like mileage, taxes, gas, etc. It also doesn’t include tips. A nonprofit labor group told TechCrunch its calculations show the average hourly rate is probably less than $6, based on its reviews of real DoorDash driver pay data. That is a not-insignificant disparity, and one that points to a larger gulf in understanding between DoorDash corporate and its drivers, who may be perceiving driver compensation and experience in entirely different ways.
