You'd be surprised how much you save by not working.Taxi insurance is 40/50 a week minimum.

Lads will end up in a situation where the Covid payment barely covers the cost of running the taxi and then they will be working for €50 a shift.So they'd be no better off unless they work 7 days for 12/13 hours a day.That's not exaggerating but that's all there will be available until all restrictions are lifted.

Don't forget there are still loads of lads who don't yet know they can legally work and claim.It will take a few weeks before they all get back out there.Only a small section of divers look in here.

Many drivers will put all their hopes into Christmas but I'd say the work xmas party plans are cancelled by now.A bit bleak really.

DMG is gonna have something to say...

It's a job an hour out there at the moment by night and that is with me as Ambassador/Screened cab/Gold status and on Priority.
And that's before lockdown.....

even if lads do come back,they'll be coming back to nothing .cancelling each other out,and fighting over the small bit of work that might be available.I dont know why,but im still paying my insurance,and im not working

There's nothing to apply for,just earn €480 after expenses,in a 4 week period,and still collect the puppy.

42 you done Ok in Cork but Dublin is Fucked .Offices closed,pubs closed .No sport or tourists wait for lockdown 4.2 with lads back on the empty streets doubt to many will turn over 300 a week before costs .The Government dont give either of their Fucks how much you earn and claim the Puppy Coin .The Limit is to stop full time Self employed working on sites .Tradesmen getting 300 a day as self employed then taking the piss by claiming the Puppy money .The 480 limit gives them a cut off .As you were all told by the Rodent you could always work and claim as long as your income was significantly impacted now they have closed off that loophole by limiting the amount you can earn .This change applies TO ALL SELF EMPLOYED WORKERS it is not designed just for taxi drivers .

so can you sign back up for the covid payment and earn 480 a month, or is the 480 just for the lads who never came off the covid payment?

.It dosent apply to you your not on the PUP but you make a good point .I would think the reason they say you have 16 weeks is to prevent people who returned to work from signing back on and working .Im sure their assumption was that those who returned already were making coin .

It is totally unfair if I cant get the 480 but someone can who chose to stay on the pup a few weeks longer than I did.
