Drivers of New Brunswick 3/5

number 3Part 3/5

Lebanon Maroon has been a taxi driver with All Brunswick and Victory cab for 14 years out of the 25 years he has spent in the United States. He worked in the construction and food business for 10 years before moving to the taxi business. When asked what he loved most about his job, he said he didn’t really like driving a taxi, but he did it because he needed a job. Maroon said he wishes he could stop driving a cab and do something else. “I guess it is different for everyone. Some people get good jobs and others who don’t have college degrees don’t get good jobs,” he said. Maroon spends his free time playing the lottery in hopes of winning and leaving the taxi business. “I don’t face challenges as a daytime driver. Maybe those in the nighttime do, but I just drive my cab and that’s it.”
