How many will be affected?

There are currently 27,000 Angkas Riders.

17,000 displaced by Joyride of 10,000 riders.


The point is jobs lost and offered,not the different fields. There should be balance of priorities and following the law on "illegal" workers be it Mainlander Chinese, or the soon to be illegal Motor Taxi Riders. The problem may be on the different treatment because illegal Mainlanders are untouchable and allowed to stay, while the soon to be illegal Motor Taxi Riders will have immediate punishment like their Motorcycle will be subject to impound if found still operating. When you say illegal, punishment should be applicable to all.
