More Pain for Cab Drivers
As you can read in today's Star Tribune, there's more pain being imposed on cab drivers. Most of the article concentrates on disputes between drivers and a particular company, but buried in the tenth paragraph is a telling statement:
"A recent move by the city of Minneapolis to require taxis to accept credit cards was another blow, they said, as drivers will have to absorb service fees of 5 to 7 percent on full-fare rides."
Another blow indeed. That's why I voted no.
