Waste Management collected $13.4 billion in 2011. So why is this corporate giant trying to destroy good jobs in our community and leave you knee-high in trash?
Every day recycle and yard waste drivers place their bodies in harm’s way to protect the public’s health. Sanitation work ranks as one of the most dangerous jobs in America.
But rather than take care of their employees, Waste Management wants to lockout or force a strike on recycle and yard waste drivers in our communities. These are workers who grew up here and are trying to raise their families, pay their taxes, and put food on their tables.
When Waste Management locked out its own workers in Oakland, CA, in 2007, many residents did not get their trash picked up for over a month. Protect your family, protect your neighborhood, and stand with local workers.
