Driving a taxi is a hard job, with the occasional quiet shift, poor tips or surly passengers. According to recent studies, it can even have a detrimental effect on a driver’s health. This Las Vegas cab driver, however, was given the surprise of his life by a passenger – one that might change his life.
Pedro Hahamian has been working behind the wheel of a cab for almost 20 years. In that time, he has seen the business become much more challenging, to the point where it has even become difficult to earn a decent living. Unfortunately, this was starting to badly affect Hahamian’s life.
“It’s tough. It’s tough,” Hahamian told KGNS. “Too many taxis now. It’s hard to make a living.” And drivers are working longer hours as a result. As an illustration, a poll of drivers revealed that more than a third of them do not take days off.
