German food delivery website Lieferando.de is holding a summer party this week for employees with food, drinks and an “exclusive pool.” Delivery drivers aren’t invited. 

The invitation for a “Day Club Party” on Friday in Berlin’s hipster Friedrichshain district concludes with a caveat, in bold, that says “drivers and contingent workers” are excluded.
