On January 8, Go-Jek driver Debbie Simpson Ong published an impassioned post on Facebook, calling upon all passengers to stop the “I pay, you listen” attitude, citing the many challenges that private-hire vehicle drivers face in Singapore, plus the immediate need for consideration and respect from passenger to driver.

“We drive to make a living, we are not your slaves,” Ong said in her post.
