Why cabbies are treated as scum?
While making researches I found out that:• TLC drivers were not able to found a union• They are identified as “independent operators” therefore can’t claim any benefits• Cabbies are not allowed to defense themselves against fare-avoiders and drunk-pukers• TLC Commission can fine cabbies from time to time for a fare refusal ($300) without any proof of denial • Forum is utterly boring, doesn’t cover every day cabbies’ troubles
