Taxi drivers in Malaysia have voiced their dissatisfaction with the legality of ridesharing and ride-hailing services like Uber and GrabCar, according to Yahoo! News.
Anonymous taxi drivers spoke to ProjekMMO, a Malaysian newspaper, with complaints of reduced income after ridesharing services were permitted to operate in the country. The drivers say that the presence of ridesharing cut their daily income almost in half.
The issue has reportedly caused some drivers to voice support for the center- and left-leaning Pakatan Harapan political alliance in an upcoming general election.
