Baltimore Taxi Protest -- What The Media Didn't Show You! from MacArthur Media
This protest was a major disruptive event, the largest protest of it's kind in recent city history, yet strangely, the media hardly spoke about it. The organizers were interviewed by the networks, but the footage was never aired.
Could it be they don't want you to see how powerful organized labor can be? Since the PSC seems to be unwilling to relent on this massive pay cut, the cab drivers are already planing a second, much larger event.
