Thousands of steelworkers this morning lined the Las Vegas Strip in support of union taxi cab drivers, according to a report from KLAS-TV Channel 8.
The TV station reports that protestors marched between the Paris-Las Vegas and Bally's hotel-casinos about 7 a.m. The steelworkers are attending a convention at the Paris.
The rally comes a little more than a week after the Nevada Taxicab Authority raised cab rates and allowed a new fuel surcharge for drivers, the TV station reported.
