Taxis will be hard to hail during one-day strike


Taxis wait in line for passengers near Seoul Station, central Seoul, yesterday, a day before taxi drivers planned a nationwide strike. Four taxi driver associations will stop services today on a one-day strike, except for cabs in Yeosu, South Jeolla, because of the Yeosu Expo. About 90,000 out of 250,000 taxis nationwide are expected to take part in the strike, demanding fare increases and a reduction of fuel prices. It is unclear if the remaining 160,000 drivers, who are not members of the four associations, will join the strike. [NEWSIS]
