Former Paralegal Earns More as a Bike Courier

I’ve seen several news stories about the rise of e-filing killing the careers of bike messengers, but apparently business is good if you deliver food and not court documents.

James Beard, a former paralegal who did not find desk-work appealing, told New Orleans CityBusiness that he loves his job delivering food for Fiorella’s Cafe:

“I make more money now than I did when I was a paralegal,” he said. “At Fiorella’s, we make $6 per hour and then we get tips on top of that.”

On a good night Beard said he will go home with up to $120 in tips, and a flexible work schedule makes it easy for him to clock extra hours.

The new job sounds pretty good until you read the part about Beard getting “doored”…
