Do these individuals earn a full wage or do they rely on tips?

Tipping the pharmacy delivery person is illegal and if they take your tip they will lose their job. A compliment about the driver to the pharmacy would be more appropriate.

It is absolutely not illegal to tip the driver. They make minimum wage and have to deliver no matter what the weather or the condition of the area they deliver to. My nephew delivers for a local pharmacy and during his deliveries, he has been at front doors while drug raids were going on at the house next door with guns drawn, and he has twice seen people in body bags on the lawn when he's had to deliver. Be kind and throw them a tip once in awhile. It's a job that no one wants, but he does it to help pay for his college and his car. He is always so appreciative when people even give him a dollar.

Why not tip? If you don't want to then don't.

What if you can't afford it and the whole point of getting it delivered is because you are poor?
