The data that has been collected was analyzed using Spearman correlation analysis. The analysis results show the value of sig. (2-tailed) the t-test is 0.000, which means a significant relationship between the NBM value and the perceived complaint status. The correlation coefficient value is 0.960, indicating a high association between the NBM value and the complaint status felt by online motorcycle taxi drivers. So the higher the NBM value, the higher the pain felt by online motorcycle taxi drivers
