Josh, who goes by joshuaerabu on TikTok, said he works for DoorDash as a side hustle.
He told his 306,000 followers that the app allows him to set goals.
These goals allow him to keep track of how much he’s making and how many more hours he needs to work.
DoorDash said nationally Dashers (as they’re called) earn $25 for every hour they work, including 100% of tips.
A Dasher can make approximately $100 for four hours of work.
