hi all,

pl. spread this message which is very urgent.

In The Times of India there was an article / advertisement

about Pizza delivery Companies which guarantees you free pizza if they

fail to deliver within the specified time (like 30 minutes). Have you


wondered who pays for the free pizzas?? Well, the delivery boy is made

to pay for the pizza. They are paid such low wages and the price of the

pizza is deducted from their monthly wages which can amount to upto 60%

in some months (It becomes difficult to run their family). To deliver

the pizzas the delivery boys take high traffic risks as delivery


their priority. Their life and safety risks are neither looked into by

the Pizza Shop Management nor the Pizza Delivery Boy himself. (They

are more concerned to avoid the deduction from their salary).

If this type of exploitation is carried on in your city's pizza

logistics we should stop availing the home delivery system, because to


our pizza one person may be risking his life. Is the life of an Indian

citizen so cheap and of no value? In case he is late in delivering

the pizza, we are enjoying the free pizza at the hard earned money of


poor delivery boy. Is it fair or right on our part to do it?

As a human, please think and if you feel that this is wrong, please

spread the message and stop having pizzas delivered at home for FREE

Hi Manish
Good to hear you for that initiative you have taken. Even i had heard earlier of the same when i had asked a delivery boy to deliver the pizza for free as he was already late and ha had also given me the same reason for that.
Good keep it up

Dear Manish
It is a nice post, however, I'm afraid I do not agree with you. My brother himself was working with a Pizza company and once in a while the deliveries did get delayed. But he was never fined or had his salary deducted for it. Yes, but if the delivery boys act smart and the delays occur often, then they are taken to task, which I agree is part of the work management. When a person takes up such a job, where he is required to do a specific task in a specific time, and he accepts it, it should become his priority. Why, don't you reach the office in time daily, and if on a one off chance you are late, you may be forgiven, but if you become habitual of becoming late then you are taken to task by your seniors, at that time you cannot give an excuse like I cannot risk my life to come to the office on time. These are discipline issues, and discipline has to be maintained in every organisation. Whether it is a pizza delivery company or an MNC.

Thanks for the information, but we have come across through this situtation that the pizza guy came late but we when we confirmed it from him he said this money is not goin to get deducted from his pocket. If, it would have been that who would want them to pay as is it they are kept on low sal packages.

This is a misleading posting.
Reasons :
1. Delivery within 30/60 seconds applies to OTC sale.
2. How will there be vehicular traffic inside the pizza store?
3. No specific individual is involved in the supply chain, as it a team-work.
HR people.......... aren't you thinking???????????
