Couriers are among the most hardworking yet least protected workers in South Korea. Between 2015 and 2019, only one to four couriers died per year in the country. But in 2020, nine couriers died in the first half of the year alone.
With the demand for courier services skyrocketing amid the coronavirus pandemic, couriers are struggling to cope with the sheer volume of orders. They are working long hours for low wages. It may be true that no human interaction is needed when shopping online, but there are humans involved in delivering the purchased goods.
The string of deaths among couriers this year has caused a national uproar and has drawn attention to workers’ overloaded work as early morning delivery service takes place. In this Real Research survey, we aim to know the opinion of Koreans regarding the controversy among early-morning deliveries. Which courier do they prefer and what is their opinion on the excessive workload of couriers?
