> It's the exact same way that it works for waiters.

Waiters don't pay the restaurant back if they go over minimum wage. So, no, it's emphatically not the same way it works.

And even if it were, "it's legal to screw people!" is not a reasonable nor humane response to "people are getting screwed!".

As I understand it, neither do DD delivery people.

Except that they can float the actual fee to avoid having to pay more than that because they have additional market flexibility and more information than anyone else, yes.
