On Tuesday, March 11 at 11 AM, the Boston Zero Waste Task Force will hold a briefing to release recommendations to the City of Boston on the best path toward zero waste and good, safe jobs.
Though funded with city tax dollars, Boston recycling contractor jobs are dangerous, exempt from Boston living wage (paying at or just above minimum wage), and mostly temp jobs. Boston can follow successful practices established by leading cities, to decreases climate and toxic pollution, and creates family-sustaining good, safe job opportunities for Boston’s neighborhoods – including a living wage, permanent (not temped) jobs, safety requirements, and a union card count neutrality agreement.
