  1. No fare sudnt increase yet, minimum wage no increase, so wet it fe come from to pay all those increases of thgs, may God help us all.

  2. A taxi and government workers alone get raise in Jamaica regular 9to5 ppl feel it the most 9to5 ppl want a raise to

    1. The government is playing smart. They raise taxi fare on the people in a time when it is hard so that the people can cry and say that the taxi man them should be grateful for it because every one is suffering. The government is not going to raise minimum wage because they know that if they do so the private sector and private business owners that are from China and spanish countries will be pissed at them and that will affect them and their money. This is why jamaica will never go forward because instead we all stand together and say that this is unacceptable and demand raise for every one across the board at about 30% any thing less than that you will not accept it. Then the government will of yo listen because that will echo worldwide and other countries will see our suffering. Stand apart and say that one is greedy and they should be grateful for that little is the main reason why jamaica stuck because we are satisfy with what is fred to us without questioning the government.

  3. Mek sense them top run taxi uno only a think bout uno self, wah bout people weh a work and caa find fare plus feed family and of fi a work 7 days a week

  4. So where the people going to get it from sir??? From minimum don’t raise,they can’t afford it..every 1a ball not only you guy’s alone.

  5. Why them a complain? Everybody have it hard because of the pandemic!! There should have been no increase!! Taxi man dem pack the car dem to full capacity! 2 a front and 5 a back!! Too blasted greedy!

    1. The increase is justified due to increase of gas price, what really need is for payment increase to keep up with the living and the expense these time. The taxi drivers need to understand that the people pay need to be increase too, to facilitate all increase

    2. The country seems to be going into a dictatorship, where you just take what you get, and you don’t have little to no room to question, or choose

  6. None of these taxi operators think about the lack of increase in minimum wage they are already overcharging the traveling public

  7. What About minimum wages both party is wicked this is what people voted for Andrew wicked,and cooking gas , food gone up,

  8. If these commuters even know and have the experience about public transportation they would talk something different most of these new cars and busses we see on the street are own by the bank so bank payments insurance road license wear and tear plus feed you family I was so glad I never have to Barrow no money sorry for these who have to in these time

  9. lol man them say 30% more, so when the island and country lock early how people fi make a living work and pay them fair ya when everything is limited. lock down is not for the poor just for the rich.

  10. Well if it is more than 15% how ppl a guh manage. It rough on everybody. Look how many ppl lose dem job.

  11. These are hard times taxi drivers, I do understand everything raise up on you guys too but the regular Joe’s that take your taxis didn’t get any pay raise either so how dem fi pay more when they haven’t been making more esp during these difficult times with covid still hampering the economy. Let’s look at both sides.

  12. Them a talk about the government wicked!, what about the people that’s going to take the taxi and don’t have the increase fare money to pay them because minimum wage done a kill their pocket

  13. Government of Jamaica is a waste of time , youths please try and leave Jamaica, go on farm work and run off, plenty white women waiting out here to fix papers, leave Jamaica empty, land of wood and water!

  14. Appreciate the increasd because time hard and the place under lockdown every minute for the time being

  15. Jamaica a my place and I say without a apology andrew needs fi roll back all taxes to atleast 20% to build the economy . Only the clear minded will understand .
