QCOSTARICA – They weren’t there looking for a job, they were there to protest a company looking to hire people looking for a job.

On Thursday, a group of five angry taxi drivers paid their entry to the Expoempleo at the Antigua Aduana (Old Customs) house, to protest face-to-face against Uber employees and their recruitment stand at the job fair.

Among the taxi drivers was Virginia Moreira, who last month chained herself to a tree outside the house of President Luis Guillermo Solis, again protesting against Uber, alleging corruption in allowing Uber to continue operating.
