Seven Taxi Suicides in One Year

Newsman Dominic Carter with Struggling Taxi Drivers

Imagine you had to pay a million dollars for your business, as a requirement of the City Government, but your direct competitor, paid nothing.

In other words, competition from Uber and Lyft is drastically lowering the incomes of Taxi and Livery drivers.

The Taxi drivers say technology is not killing them but they instead blame city leaders that permitted the sudden increase in the number of for-hire vehicles on New York’s Streets. Newsman Dominic Carter spent one Friday Afternoon with four different taxi drivers to hear their frustration directly. You can click here to also read further about the encounter.
