Some Chicago cab drivers are protesting an increase in leasing fees and changes in the way they collect fares.

Drivers for Chicago Carriage Cab Company walked off the job Tuesday morning.

They say they now have to pay $95 a day to lease a cab, and they claim the company refuses to reimburse them in cash for credit card fares.

Chicago Carriage Cab Company will not comment.
