Taxi drivers in Shenzhen went on strike Monday to protest competition from car-hiring services, Hong Kong Free Press reported, citing local media. Hong Kong-based Oriental Media claimed that up to 90% of taxi drivers had gone on strike, unhappy about the competition they face from other car-hiring services such as Didi Kuaidi. Images posted online showed long queues at taxi stands in Shenzhen and scores of taxis sitting vacant at parking lots. The Oriental Media report said local government officials, police and taxi company management staff were working to “appease” the taxi drivers to prevent the strike from turning into a larger movement.
