I have been a cab driver in New Orleans for over 17 years. AMA.
Because of my busy work schedule, I will be answering your questions on Wednesday, February 25th from 3:30-5:30PM EST
I’m Delores Montgomery and I’ve been a cab driver in the city of New Orleans for 17 years. I’m also the President of AFSCME Local 234. Cab drivers all across New Orleans are partnering with the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) to launch Cab Drivers for Justice, an aggressive campaign to fight for a voice on the job. We are organizing to create better working conditions and provide quality services.
