TWO groups from the gig economy will be meeting Transport Minister Wee Ka Siong to air their grievances on alleged unfair treatment linked to their income.

Malaysian P-hailing (food delivery) Riders’ Association deputy president Abdul Hakim Abdul Rani said the group who will be meeting Wee on Monday will raise issues such as fare structure, safety, welfare and the security of riders and drivers. They also want to be recognised as workers eligible to receive EPF and Socso benefits.
