San Diego Yellow Cab drivers go on strike

Posted: Updated:

About 150 San Diego Yellow Cab drivers have gone on strike, just in time for the holiday travel season.

According to the San Diego Union Tribune, the drivers turned in their keys Friday after asking for and being denied a reduction in their weekly car leasing rates. They wanted to lower the rate from $865 to $700.

The drivers say the rate is too high and in the bad economy they are making less than minimum wage.
