Waking sometimes at 3 or 4 O'clock in the morning to meet the needs of the city is what the sanitation workers of New Orleans do on a daily basis. They are tasked with handling and disposing of the City's trash. These men work tirelessly for hours on end to ensure these needs are met but, they are now having to fight for fair treatment and fair pay. These men have not been provided any protective gear to guard against or combat the pandemic we are all facing. Instead of addressing the concerns of the workers who are risking their lives in the COVID19 riddled city of New Orleans; they were fired or told if they didn't stop fighting for what is right, they would be fired.
This fund is being created to show the City as well as the company's not addressing the problem that the city, the world, support these workers. These individuals deserve hazardous pay and benefits for the work they do.
