I wonder why the media thinks Cuomo is so wonderful? The government is not only unfair to the Uber and Lyft drivers-----but look what happened to the cab drivers----and what did a cab medallion end up being worth?Nothing------- because Uber and Lyft came in and undercut the purpose of the medallion. I remember reading of one cab driver who committed suicide in front of city hall—because the love of corporations in NY government makes citizens into paupers!
A law that protects workers has been in place sine 2018-----how Trump-like much of America is becoming : (

The media is constantly trying to create the next potential President of the United States of America. They do not THINK he is wonderful. They want the people to think that.

If a Cuomo keeps advancing the interests of the 1 percent they will continue the positive press.

I concur that cities, counties and states deserve to be sued to the hilt for allowing and enabling Uber and Lyft to undercut taxi services that for many decades paid big money to these gubmits and adhered to extensive regulations to obtain and maintain their franchises (called medallions, licenses,etc.)

Historically many of the franchises have been held by immigrants. Many of these cities claim to be pro-immigrant, pro-diversity. Allowing Uber and Lyft to bankrupt taxi operators confirms the hypocrisy of these gubmits.

Hi Lay_lowStudiosOre-Wa.

LOL, well I would like to see a real show of THIS WEEK ON MAIN STREET. America really needs that! : )
