You are no more privy to employment information than any other news reader posting here. You speak out of speculation only and without any credibility. You have absolutely no idea of the cab drivers employee or contract status, therefore no idea as to whether he is entiltled to any workmans compensation of any sort.
The fact is that the cab companies in this area utilize the service of their cabbys as contractors and only provide the vehicle, it's a simple and basic business decision and practice. No different than a hair salon renting booths and/or chairs to contracting stylists. While off subject anyway, you seem hell-bent to again nail a point home that you know very little, if anything at all, about.
