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.

“In 2021 a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay is the very least that working people should be guaranteed.”

- Angela Rayner, Labour’s deputy leader, in response to our investigation
