DoorDash engineers are upset that they will have to deliver meals once a month

Criticism over DoorDash’s treatment of its delivery workers might be as commonplace as lunch rush spikes, but the company’s latest labor brouhaha isn’t from its independent contractors, who reportedly zip around cities for less than minimum wage. This time the flak is coming from some of its white-collar office workers, incensed at a newly reinstated policy. According to SFGate, a DoorDash engineer complained last month about the company’s plan to reinstate its WeDash program, which would require all employees, including CEO Tony Xu, to make a delivery once a month. In their post, which has garnered nearly 2,000 comments, the engineer wrote, “I didn’t sign up for this, there was nothing in the offer letter/job description about this,” noting that they made $400,000 in total compensation. Meanwhile, long-time Dashers are skeptical that a once-a-month delivery could teach anyone about the myriad challenges delivery drivers face. In an interview with Yahoo Finance, one contractor suggested having non-delivery employees rush around to deliver a minimum of 15 orders. Matthew Sedacca
