Re: “Berkeley Cabbies Take on City Hall

Judith, your article on cabbing is a fine piece of journalism. I was particularly interested in what you had to say because I'm a former cab driver who spent 7 years cabbing in new york city. Some of the issues you mention are complex. I would take a passenger to her destination, but I was not allowed to pick up another passenger. So I had to return with an empty cab and an empty purse. And of course, with lost time. The most serious problem cab drivers confront is being forced to be independent contractors. So the cab driver has to first pay up front to take the cab out, and also had to fill up the tank. I don't know the situation in Berkeley. But if you ever plan to do another piece on the hassles of cab driving, perhaps you should look at the independent contractor issue. Since I drove a long time ago, I was defined, appropriately, as an employee. My take was 43 percent of the clock. If I didn't make money, nor did the employer. That seemed, and still seems, fair to me. h
