This week on The Daily Beat: Uber vs. Yellow Cabs: Which is truly more economically viable for NYC?
Today on the Daily Beat, Thursday July 30, 2015: We hear from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance on their strategy to fight Uber.
Uber is transforming the platform for transportation around the world, especially in NYC with a long history of employing the working class as full-time yellow cabbies.

Politicians, with the support of associations like the New York Taxi Workers Association, question and dissent the positive story of Uber.
