Consider the delivery boys, too

The UAE's mandatory midday break for people working outdoors during the summer months came into force on June 15. The break, from 12.30pm until 3pm each day is a great relief for people working outdoors. The rule will remain in place until September 15.
However, one segment of workers is getting missed out here. They are the so-called delivery boys, and they could belong to food outlets and courier companies. Most of them deliver goods on two wheelers. And they are out all day, come rain or shine. I think they should also be considered by the authorities.
