As Deliveroo prepares a multibillion-pound stock market flotation that could net its chief executive as much as £500m, our latest investigation has found that many riders in the UK are paid less than the minimum wage. Sometimes earnings drop as low as £2 an hour.
We collected and analysed thousands of invoices from Deliveroo riders across the country. Deliveroo say riders earn £13 per hour during their busiest times. But one in three of the riders we sampled made less than the adult minimum wage of £8.72.
