More than 1,200 Pizza Hut delivery drivers in California will lose their jobs due to the state’s fast food minimum wage increase.

Franchises in California plan to eliminate delivery driver positions and use third-party delivery services like DoorDash and Uber Eats instead.

This decision comes as the state’s minimum wage for fast food workers is set to increase to $20 in April. (Trending: Could Taylor Swift Save Biden In 2024?)

The layoffs will mainly affect Pizza Hut delivery drivers in Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties.

The Pizza Hut employee said, “The money they are giving us as severance pay is a slap on the face.”

“It comes to $3 a month for nine-plus years of service,” they continued.

Yum! Brands, the parent company of Pizza Hut, KFC, and Taco Bell, said they were “aware of the recent changes to delivery services at certain franchise restaurants in California.”

“Our franchisees independently own and operate their restaurants in accordance with local market dynamics and comply with all federal, state, and local regulations while continuing to provide quality service and food to our customers via carryout and delivery,” continued their statement.

The minimum wage law affects approximately 550,000 fast food workers and 30,000 restaurants in California.
