Taximen cry for relief

Social Share

TAXI DRIVERS are complaining that business is down and are asking Government for an ease on the cost of fuel and an increase in taxi rates.
They pleaded for Government’s sympathy yesterday as they spoke to the news media at the Lower Broad Street taxi stand where the Barbados Labour Party ended its Rubbing Shoulders tour with taximen. The tour took in the Bridgetown Port, Grantley Adams International Airport and the Broad Street taxi stands.
Hallam Watson, who operates at the airport, complained that most days, he earned only $13. Often he was forced to “sleep in the line” in order to get a job and was now living off his savings.
“It is very hard,” Watson said.  (AH)
