This is from David Cunliffe’s Facebook page. What is missing is exactly what DC is proposing to change this. I can only guess it is one or more of the following:
- Ban taxi drivers from working more than 8 hours a day
- Reduce the number of taxis allowed in NZ, so that each driver gets more jobs
- Bring in minimum pricing for taxis, trebling the per km rate or per hour rate so they earn a living wage
- Nationalise the entire taxi fleet, and put all taxi drivers on a salary of at least $18.40 an hour
Surely it is one of the above. You wouldn’t campaign on how awful it is taxi drivers work for $5 an hour 14 hours a day, and not have any solutions to it?
