Delivery Man In India Fired For Eating Client’s Food

A food delivery man in India was sacked after he was filmed eating food meant for a client and resealing the container, sparking a heated debate about the delivery industry in the country, the BBC has reported.

The video, which was filmed in Madurai in southern India, shows the delivery man, who is wearing a T-shirt from popular Indian food delivery app Zomato, eating food out of boxed orders then resealing them and putting them back into a delivery bag.

Initially met with disgust, anger and ridicule, the video was watched thousands of times, the BBC said.

However after the man’s employer announced that he had been sacked, persons on social media became more sympathetic.

According to the BBC, many pointed to long work hours, difficult conditions and poor pay as serious issues faced by delivery employees.
