Abstract

According to some experts, temporary workers are becoming less willing to speak out when they have made a loss as previously they were. Nonetheless, when their benefits are being infringed, temporary workers will bargain with the employer to safeguard their own interests. However, there is no unified explanation for the reasons behind the formation and solutions. Therefore, this paper collects data on temporary workers employed by some companies and analyzes the correlation between the data and the case of "temporary workers employed by Meituan Takeaway" to investigate the topic of how temporary workers should negotiate with companies to protect their own interests. The study found that there are two reasons why temporary workers are not valued by the company, including the low skill level of temporary workers and the high risk of quitting; the company hires temporary workers not only because it can save human resources costs, but also shows higher motivation for temporary workers. The company should insist on "equal pay for equal work", which is beneficial to the development of the company and establish a good corporate image. In view of the above findings, this paper proposes that the company should actively cooperate with the negotiation process and the temporary workers should use such negotiation skills to communicate with the company.
