NYC Taxi Drivers Hunger Strike For Debt Relief
NYC taxi drivers are being crushed by hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt after the city sold them taxi medallions at steeply inflated prices.
NYC Taxi drivers are on a hunger strike. Thousands of drivers are $500K+ in debt after being deceived by the city. They’ve lost their homes, retirement savings, and some have been driven to suicide.
“We are the American Nightmare now,” driver Richard Chow told us.
Drivers and allies of the NY Taxi Workers Alliance are calling on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to take action and provide relief.
