More riders, shorter hours add to delivery riders’ woes

Alfian Z.M. Tahir

BUSINESS is slow for food-delivery riders as the number of riders is increasing each day, especially after the government reintroduced the movement-control order (MCO) in several states in the country.

Speaking to The Malaysian Insight, riders from Foodpanda and GrabFood said they made more income before the MCO was implemented, and urged the government to prolong the operation hours for restaurants.

  • The Govt should seriously consider extending the operation hours. It not only help the delivery people, but also restaurants and bring convenience to the public. Its a win-win and I don't see how that can increase the risk of Covid-19
