Taxi Strike Version 2.0

Today's taxi strike seems to have been more effective than the last one. At least I didn't see any taxis today, but that said I didn't spend a lot of time on the roads. Did anyone get a taxi today?

I know some were still picking up passengers and the radio reported that there was some small confrontations between working taxis and strikers. The taxi unions also seem to have gotten their PR act together and were flooding the media with their side of the dispute. The unions are already talking about more protests, like a march or a driving protest through the city.

We'll see how many days of lost income the self employed taxi drivers are willing to put up with before they start to break ranks with the union.
