    I do not know if it is "off topic" but I am a bit lazy to digging out old threads and I just don't want to create new threads.  pwnd

    Chinese market regulator strengthens protection for food delivery workers

    Food delivery platforms in China are being pushed to guarantee their workers with income above minimum pay, insurance and a relaxation in delivery deadlines, under a set of reforms announced on Monday by China's market regulator.

    The guidelines were issued by the State Administration for Market Regulation along with six other administrative departments, including the National Development and Reform Commission, the Cyberspace Administration of China and the Ministry of Public Security.

    Food delivery platforms in China, including Meituan (3690.HK) and Alibaba's (9988.HK) Ele.me, have attracted severe criticism on social media for their treatment of delivery workers, most of whom are not covered by basic social and medical insurance.

    Meituan will "resolutely implement" the guidelines and continue to "effectively enhance labour rights," it said in a statement. Alibaba's (9988.HK) Ele.me did not respond to a Reuters request for comment.

    Meituan has been working with the government to purchase employment injury insurance for its delivery drivers, the company's chief executive, Wang Xing, said on a conference call in May.

    Glad to hear it, extreme deadlines and low wages and bad conditions lead to stress and deaths...

    China spells out how '996' work culture is illegal

    China has issued its most detailed warning yet against the excessive-work culture that pervades the country's largest corporations, using real and richly detailed court disputes to address a growing backlash against the punishing demands of the private sector.

    The Supreme People's Court and Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security published a lengthy essay on Friday (Aug 27) about labour violations and unreasonable overtime, labelled "996" because of the common practice of working from 9am to 9pm, six days a week.

    It outlined 10 court cases - including but not limited to the tech industry - in which employees were forced to work extra hours, or put in harm's way.

    China's increasingly profitable tech giants are grappling with public outrage over their gruelling schedules, a backlash fuelled by a growing chorus of complaints on social media and even deaths.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping's administration has launched a campaign to rein in the growing influence of the country's largest corporations, while calling on the private sector to share the wealth.
