This is the tyranny of the multimillion dollar medallions

This is the tyranny of the taxi guild, and their multimillion dollar medallions that they defend like a dragon guarding its golden hoard.

Most cities require medallions to operate taxis. In NYC, they cost well over 1 million dollars. And the Commission, whose only job is to permit the medallions, makes sure no stinking poor person can earn a living with their car.

Freaking scumbags!
