Delivery riders call for equal labour rights

Quick Summary

Delivery riders, often considered informal workers, are calling on the next government to ensure they receive the same benefits as regular employees, such as health insurance, according to an activist.

"When a road accident occurs, riders are frequently required to handle repairs or hospital expenses on their own without any company assistance," he said.

This approach may not be sufficient in addressing the issue and riders may feel neglected by the system, she said.
