Cool story WNYC about Sanitation workers
« on: March 20, 2013, 10:49:28 PM »
Terms used by the sanitation workers.


NYU anthropologist Robin Nagle is a big fan of NYC’s garbage collectors and makes the case that theirs is the city’s most essential and most dangerous job.  She is a clinical associate professor of anthropology and urban studies at NYU and the Department of Sanitation's first official "anthropologist-in-residence".  She shares the inside knowledge she picked up studying and working as one of "New York's Strongest" in her new book: Picking Up: On the Streets and Behind the Trucks with the Sanitation Workers of New York City.[/font][/size]
