There’s no way that the drivers can be compensated proportional to the risk they’re putting themselves in without raising the prices of deliveries - and I acknowledge that that puts more strain on newly-unemployed households - but I fucking hate that the onus falls on individuals to make sure a company’s workers are… Read more
Some of the people below are trying to make a case for his innocence because the woman he raped has kept silent about it.
