Free Pizza..Please spend some time

Recently in The Times of India there was an article / advertisement
about Pizza delivery Companies which guarantees you free pizza
if they fail to deliver within the specified time (like 30 minutes).
Have you ever wondered who pays for the free pizzas??

Well, the delivery boy is made to pay for the pizza. They are paid
such low wages and the price of the pizza is deducted from their
monthly wages which can amount to up to 60% in some months (It becomes
difficult to run their family). To deliver the pizzas the delivery
boys take high traffic risks as delivery becomes their priority. Their
life and safety risks are neither looked into by the Pizza Shop
Management nor the Pizza Delivery Boy himself. (They are more
concerned to avoid the deduction from their salary).

If this type of exploitation is carried on in your city's pizza
logistics we should stop availing the home delivery system, because to
deliver our pizza one person may be risking his life. Is the life of
an Indian citizen so cheap and of no value? In case he is late in
delivering the pizza, we are enjoying the free pizza at the hard
earned money of a poor delivery boy.

Is it fair or right on our part to do it?

As a human, please think and if you feel that this is wrong, please
spread the message and stop having the so called FREE pizzas delivered
at home.
