Quoted @Cinespons

I’m all for Uber and the other car services but I sincerely hope the city will step in with protection for these cab drivers. Aren’t there laws against loans on terms that are impossible to repay? It’s almost like trafficking... also targeting the poor and vulnerable. 😶

Since we published our investigation into the taxi industry in the newspaper a couple weeks ago, the state Legislature and city council have both said they plan to hold hearings and draft legislation to address this. We'll be following what happens. #TheWeeklyNYT
