Round 2 anyone? The question is definitely on the mind of many as NYC might be asked to deal with round 2 of a taxi strike. Mayor Bloomberg seems to think the city is ready for a second round & even thinks the taxi drivers should know better. He says the city will be ready but feels taxi drivers should know it is in their best financial interest to keep working.
Taxi drivers were expected to have their cars fitted for credit card & GPS units as they brought their cars in for inspection. The inspections started yesterday & will continue through January 31, 2008. Taxi Workers Alliance Executive Director Bhairavi Desai tells the media that their plans will be announced soon.
I say we are guaranteed round 2 of the taxi strike & I think this one might last longer. I also think more drivers might stop working & the consequences will hit pockets of our transit system.
