New York City retailers claim they’re experiencing Frito-Lay shortage

Due to pay cuts for delivery drivers, New York City is experiencing a Frito-Lay shortage. New York City is reportedly experiencing a massive Frito-Lay shortage after the company cut pay to delivery drivers, prompting many to quit, but the company claims all its snacks are being delivered as scheduled. Last year, Frito-Lay, which is owned by PepsiCo, began decreasing drivers’ pay by as much as 33 percent, according to the New York Post. This change meant many employees would lose $30,000 a year. The change came as part of a more salary-driven structure, which nearly eliminated commission opportunities. While drivers in other regions may have benefited from the pay adjustment, the Post reports this isn’t the case in New York. Add that to the fact that the company is already facing a national truck driver shortage and the result is many stores across the city left without Doritos, Cheetos, Lays, Ruffles and other products produced by Frito-Lay.
