Many of the sanitation workers who collect residential trash in Montgomery County earn less than $20,000 a year, reports the Mid-Atlantic Laborers. “And most of those sanitation workers do not have health insurance because they do not earn enough to afford it.” MALiUNA says that the Montgomery County Council is now “considering legislation to fix this problem by ensuring that sanitation workers who collect residential solid waste under contracts with Montgomery County have access to affordable health insurance” and are encouraging activists “to speak to your friends and neighbors about supporting this legislation.”
