Grubhub has come up with a way to route phone calls to restaurants through a Grubhub computer as an excuse to bill the restaurants.

Get your meal deliveries from local restaurants that will write your address on paper and throw it away after — and pay them in anonymous cash.
Food delivery companies have many ways of preying on the restaurants they offer "services" to.
"Tips" to Doordash and Amazon food delivery workers go to the company rather than to the worker, they cancel out the whole of the worker's base pay.
The article seems to err in equating this to tipping of waiters. They are not the same system. Yes, the waiter's base pay is below minimum wage — but the restaurant does not claw back that base pay when the waiter gets a tip, as Doordash and Amazon do.
