In my city of Houston, TX, Yellow Cab and most other companies have Independent Contractors, so they're "self-employed" but they still have to pay for renting, borrowing and/or leasing Yellow Cabs services and vehicles and you make that up in the fares received by your passengers/customers, but other than that, you keep the rest of the fare money . They have orientation classes to train taxi drivers on map-reading, routing, how to read a meter, customer service, and definitely safety and rules of the roads.But just like any other job or business, you want to speak with a recruiter,HR or personnel about the company, job position and if it's something you really want to do. Independent Contractors are self-employed, so they have to provide for their own benefits (health, 401K,stocks,etc) and they can set their own hours.
