Some cab drivers at Palm Beach International Airport went on strike Wednesday. More than two dozen cabbies are protesting an increase in the fee they have to pay Yellow Cab to drive the taxis.
They currently pay $400 a week. They say Yellow Cab will raise that by an extra $60 a week starting on the 24th.
Balmy Corvil, A Yellow Cab driver for ten years, says "It is very, very difficult. Imagine, we work fifteen to eighteen hours a day to make $100 here." He says that's just to come up with $700 to $800 a week. The cabbies say, after paying for gas and maintenance on top of that, they're left with very little.
We called Yellow Cab for a response, but have not heard back from management.
