The bereaved families are demanding Coupang to provide ▲Full-time employment ▲Minimizing night labor ▲Provide enough rest area ▲Air conditioning facilities ▲Secretary guarantees are required. It also urged the government that "the government should conduct extensive special work supervision and thoroughly regulate and supervise business expansion that bypass the law, rather than sticking to low-quality jobs created by Coupang.".
