    Does anyone have any thoughts about the proposed changes to the hack laws?

    This is a pretty good read about it.

    Of course, it’s written by anti Uber/Lyft and pro-old-style-taxi-monopoly folks. The limited number of current monopoly taxi licenses aren’t owned by poor immigrants, they’re owned by exploitative corporations which charge the immigrant taxi drivers such high rents for the taxis that the drivers can barely get by.
    If O’Brien really wanted to help the immigrants, he’d remove the limit on the number of taxi licenses, or increase it to a meaningful number like 1500 or 2000 so the immigrants could afford to buy one.
