Report Astonishing VI article in the local rag in House prices and the economy Posted April 18, 2019 16 hours ago, HowMuch! said: I would say you are vastly underestimating the hourly rate for delivering takeaways. These are not employed job generally, only a few peak hours per day. Paid in cash plus tips only needing a couple of orders an hour that say "keep the change" and that will beat the NMW rate. I worked delivering pizzas by car a few years ago and the tips could be quite variable, normally the new-build luxury developments with shiny late-model German cars outside were the worst for demanding the last penny of their change back, whereas the leafy old-money streets with 10 year old Volvos parked outside were amongst the best for adding on an extra few quid to the total. You could do quite well on a good night but certainly not enough to build much of a house deposit.
