According to a new study1 by last-mile delivery software company Circuit, Google searches for “delivery driver jobs” have increased by 479% in the past two years.

It’s an indication that as home delivery has grown, the number of people who want the job has grown as well.

But once they have the job, drivers don’t seem so happy in it. Of the drivers surveyed that drive for Amazon, DHL, DoorDash, FedEx, Grubhub, Postmates, UPS, Uber Eats and USPS, an average of 84% said they are underpaid. 77% of all drivers surveyed said they are planning to get a second job to keep up with inflation and 15% already have one. Almost three-quarters would go on strike to fight for higher wages.
