Janitor Strike Has Little Effect on Office Tenants
According to reports from the Houston Chronicle, the janitor’s strike in Houston has had little effect on the cleanliness of the buildings they walked out on. An informal survey of tenants who work in those buildings reported that there were few signs of overflowing wastebaskets, messy bathrooms or dirty floors. Some occupants weren't even aware that there was a strike going on.
Union officials are still trying to wrap their arms around the number of janitors who actually did walk off the job. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) won't reveal the names of most of the buildings it has struck because secrecy is part of the union's strategy, according to the article.
According to the union, the strike "is not about making buildings dirty," it is about providing a living wage and insurance for these hard-working individuals.
