Some (racist) people make comments around here about the “overpaid” trash collectors. I don’t! First of all, they don’t make a lot. But the yahoos around here never saw a city function they weren’t eager to privatize.
My rule of thumb is, don’t look down on anyone who does a job you wouldn’t want to do. I appreciate these guys.
And having a reporter go out and do their job for a few hours is a good idea.
