There was a taxi strike in Paris yesterday. Except for more buses on the street, I didn't see much impact and it looked like cabs were still operating at the airports. It seems that Uber, a ride sharing operation, is undercutting the taxi industry and they want to have it regulated out of business.
My only response to them is that they may be making buggy whips in the era of the automobile. The technology and ability for entrepreneurs to provide rides to people is out of the barn and can't be put back. They either need to adjust or face a future of change.
And, oh....I bet the bus drivers appreciated the overtime.
