Domino’s CEO Patrick Doyle says his brand needs to pay more to recruit talented workers.
“We’ve gotta pay more to get people right now,” Doyle told CNBC. “The great news is the economy is moving, it is getting better, it’s getting harder to hire people.”
The average delivery driver at Domino’s makes $US7.76 an hour, according to Glassdoor. Cashiers make $US7.94 an hour.
Domino’s business is 90% franchised, meaning that individual operators set pay rates, reports Emily Cohn that The Huffington Post.
Here’s the interview with Doyle:
