All hail to the cleaning staff!

I once had an arrogant foreman who would tell us any monkey could do our jobs. The fool didn’t last long. Management needed someone with more skill at not riling up people with dangerous tools in their hands. Millions of people earn their living by collecting garbage & cleaning & these are considered the least worthy, most monkey jobs of all. But every time they go on strike, with every pound of garbage, they gain immense respect. Here an airline passenger winds her way through rubbish during a strike by the cleaning staff against budget cuts at Barcelona’s airport. They could try to hire monkeys to clean up this mess but they’d have to hire someone else to clean up monkey doo. (Photo by Manu Fernandez/AP)
