Need a Job?

Well, if you are willing to relocate to Minnesota (bring a parka),  and carry passengers who are carrying booze, it sounds like you could do well for yourself.

Muslim cabbies refuse to carry booze

MUSLIM taxi drivers in Minnesota have declared jihad on duty-free, refusing to carry passengers who are carrying alcohol.

The ban has created chaos at Minneapolis-St Paul international airport, where about three-quarters of the 900 taxi drivers are Somali and mostly Muslim.

Airport officials have begun working with taxi drivers to install colour-coded lights on taxi roofs to indicate which are alcohol friendly and which are not.

Interestingly, the airport spokesman stated that drunken passengers have had no trouble getting a cab as long as they aren’t carrying a bottle.  So, if you need a cab in Minnesota, carry your alcohol internally.
