New York City is being forced to deploy an army of 10,000 cleanup workers in response to worsening problems with trash and rats.
A newly created ‘City Cleanup Corps’ will be tasked with fighting the piles of garbage on the streets of the Big Apple, with complaints surging by 150% between March and August last year.
After a $100 million cut to the city’s sanitation budget, filth and rodent infestations have become a common sight, with data revealing that waste tonnage rose 15% by the end of March compared to the early months of the pandemic.
The city’s trash problem was further exacerbated last year when officials re-located the homeless to higher end neighborhoods and hotels in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID.
Even before the pandemic, rat sightings reported to the city’s hotline surged by 38% between 2018 and 2019.
“When we see dirty streets, people intuitively think either government isn’t doing its job or things are really bad,” said former sanitation commissioner and Democratic primary candidate Kathryn Garcia.
As we document in the video below, with the economy on its knees, trash-strewn streets, violent crime soaring and people now working remotely from home, there’s literally no reason to live in a big city anymore and people are fleeing in droves.
In the age of mass Silicon Valley censorship It is crucial that we stay in touch.
