Stable Earnings: Tang Jui Hai, Singapore

Stable Earnings: “When Grab first came into the market, I was still working as a taxi driver. As Grab operates through an app, I hesitated to sign up but I did anyway. Staff at the Grab driver centre really spent a lot of time to teach me how to use a smartphone and the app. Since driving with Grab, I am less stressed about looking for business as I am automatically assigned riders.” – Tang Jui Hai, Singapore

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
