    Melbourne taxis demonstrate against pro-Uber legislation

     

    Last Tuesday morning, taxis in the Australian city of Melbourne organised en masse to oppose the regional government’s pro-Uber plans by causing incredible hold-ups on the city’s roads.

    Taxi drivers crawled slowly along Bolte Bridge, an important connection between Melbourne’s busy airport and the city’s central business district.

    The government of Victoria, the Australian state of which Melbourne is the capital, have made moves to deregulate the city’s taxi industry; current licenses are to be abolished and replaced by a single registration that favours hire cars and rideshare services like Uber.

    The government of Victoria, the Australian state which Melbourne is the capital of, are in the process of deregulating the city’s taxi industry, where current taxi licenses are to be abolished in favour of a single taxi registration that will be introduced in favour of hire cars and rideshare services like Uber.

    Linda De Melis, spokesperson for the taxi drivers behind the action, said: “The government can dismantle the industry if they choose but we, as license holders, should not have to pay the price for industry reform.”

    The government has proposed compensation of $100,000 for a driver’s first license and $50,000 for up to three others, but these figures have been regarded as entirely insubstantial; the costs of attaining a single license can rise up to $500,000. TEST

    “We are at breaking point,” De Melis continued. “People are losing their homes and it’s that level of desperation that has driven us to this point today.”
