So what is DC proposing?



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 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?
