    First increase in 8 years. Driver income has lagged behind inflation (and is very, very low in any case).

    Why should it be anything above the minimum wage? Will all NY cabbies be now required to provide good service, speak English, know the city, or even have good driving skills? Btw, what taxi riders ever attend some obscure government commission meetings?!

    Looks like the next Wine Do might consist of pizza by the slice with a shared bottle of Clos Chaz Shaw. :eek:
