Jack Richardson: Pizza delivery drivers

I have been a resident of Steamboat Springs for 33 years and have worked in many areas of our wonderful valley.

Two weeks ago, you printed a Knight Ridder article about pizza delivery drivers making $1 per delivery.

After visiting with my upper managers, I received their consent to tell the folks in the valley that we don’t receive this at all. Because the article was printed about Pizza Hut drivers, my tips have fallen by half. I feel that the Pilot made a grave mistake in not checking out these statements from our general manager before printing this article and doing this damage to pizza drivers. We have to pay for our own delivery car or truck upkeep so that we can give the valley great service.

So could you kindly print this so we drivers for Pizza Hut can continue to live in this wonderful area?
