Taxi drivers demand a fair hearing for a fare increase

Chicago cabdrivers, angry that they have been denied a public hearing for a fare increase, picketed City Hall to deliver a list of demands to Mayor Rahm Emmanuel Wednesday March 7, 2012. They were supported by Occupy Chicago.

“The city has rejected our petition for a hearing and eliminated our right to petition,” said Fayez Khozindar, chairman of the United Taxidrivers Community Council (UTCC). “We demand a hearing.”
