Taxi Workers and The Streets of San Francisco

The deregulation of taxi workers began in San Francisco during the 1970s. It has escalated with the introduction of tech platforms for Uber and Lyft, which have allowed the massive introduction of drivers, pitting workers against workers for the profits of the billionaires who own these platforms. It has also led to massive gridlock and environmental problems while seriously impacting public transit, which now must be subsidized by the public. This forum, sponsored by the San Francisco Taxi Workers Alliance, will examine these issues and what transit workers and the public can do about it.
