MWG is a firm of solicitors and legal advisers based in Manchester with a branch office in Rochdale.
" Worker exploitation in the minicab trade is running at epidemic proportions as multinational operators engage in a vicious race to the bottom. In so doing they have effectively transferred all operational, financial and regulatory risk to the driver while absorbing all the profits. Drivers have been forced to live on no more than £5 per hour and many face financial ruin. As a result we have seen a surge of drivers looking for legal assistance and protection and we are processing a record number of worker rights claims legal claims. Drivers must have, not only the protection from the Employment Tribunal, but also from the private hire regulatory system."
