Ong Teng Koon on Active Mobility (Amendment) Bill and Shared Mobility Enterprises (Control and Licensing) Bill

(Updated: )

MP Ong Teng Koon said the experience with the active mobility drive has highlighted the vulnerability of one group of workers - delivery riders. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 4) during the debate on the Active Mobility (Amendment) Bill and the Shared Mobility Enterprises (Control and Licensing) Bill, he warned of a “potential flashpoint”. The PMD issue, he said, could be the “first warning sign” in the wider context of the gig economy. Mr Ong called for more support and protection for this group of workers.
