‘People are dying every day’: the perilous job of sanitation workers
The fatbergs are fighting back?
Sanitation workers – people whose job brings them into direct contact with human waste – are risking their lives through accident and disease because of poor workplace protection, a report has warned.
The report highlights the plight of workers in some of the world’s poorest countries and is the most indepth study to date on a group of people who do vital but dangerous and dirty work, risking their lives every day.
Yep, shitty job in poor place. The solution is? Make the place less poor.
