Seven Grievances with Grab – from a PHV driver

I am a PHV driver and this is not an easy period for us. However, our “hell period” has been going on for a while now. Even before this right, Grab has been pulling many dirty tricks to push down our wages and exploit our labour. I am now urging all to grab drivers to share this article if they agree with my opinion so far. I have 7 main grievances with Grab.

  1. Grab reduced our drivers’ incentives without reason;
  2. Grab suppressed our wages by reducing the value of gems;
  3. Grab violated agreement when they promised to consider driver opinion at townhall, but cut our salary again and again;
  4. Grab did nothing to curb the number of new drivers, which has failed to protect our ricebowls;
  5. Grab supported electric cars even when they know this will destroy our ricebowl in the future;
  6. Grab forced drivers to work even longer hours just to make a living, due to lesser incentives;
  7. Grab abused its power and and tried to tie the government’s subsidy to them to our incentives, forcing drivers to hit their ar/cr before being able to qualify for the subsidy. .

I am very disappointed with Grab again and again. I have not been driving this period, and I think I will throw my keys soon. To all potential drivers, I strongly urge you to talk to older drivers if you are thinking of working for Grab. They tell you be your own boss, that’s a lie. Nowadays even regulate how many you must accept, how many cancellations, and how much you earn all depends on the hours you drive. Flexibility is a lie.

Hope all drivers who agree with me can share this. Thank you.

    You Singaporeans are bunch of moron.

    Today is Vesak Day and is public holiday.

    Why are you calling them?

    Singaporeans are really mediocre, not worth hiring Singaporeans.

    Sack Singaporeans and hire foreigners like Ramesh who could complete his diploma in 3 months.

  • Why ?:

    The root problem here is our Govt, which allowed Foreigners to take over Singaporeans jobs, pushing us to driver Grab.

    Don’t blame Grab. Blame the Govt for making us poor and desperate, while thousands are enjoying good life living in HDB and Condos.

    Easy to fix the Grab issue. Singaporeans need to just go back to their jobs to replace the foreigners.

    We need our jobs back. Vote PAP out for making us the second class citizens in our own country, while favoring foreigners.

    Problem solved.

  • Shirley:

    Garment should only allow local born Singaporeans to drive taxi and phv . We can also boycott all pub and taxis not driven by local Singaporeans. I now always cancel phv if it’s not a local driver. When comes to taxi stand or flagging for taxi, I never want to take taxis driven by migrants.

  • Cr:

    Grab did nothing to curb number of new drivers, suppressed wages, devalue gem, did not listen to feedback…

    Sounds just like what is happening here. So its true, pple who don’t learn from history are bound to repeat their mistakes again and again. Until they either learn it the hard way or they die.
