Community and Worker Recycling Forum: support good green recycling jobs, not junk jobs!

sorterSaturday, November 9, 2 – 4 pm, La Primera Iglesia Presbiteriana Hispana, 1941 High Street, Oakland.

Recycling workers are the backbone of Alameda County’s environmental efforts to promote recycling and reduce our reliance on landfills.

Most recycling workers, the majority of whom are immigrants, earn on average less than $13/hour and are struggling to provide for their families while facing hazardous conditions on the job. Last year, a worker was even killed at the Transfer and Processing Facility in San Leandro operated by Waste Management.

Come tell Oakland councilmembers: “We want good green jobs, not junk jobs!”

Oakland is finalizing lucrative 20-year, multi-million-dollar trash and recycling contracts. Help ensure that workers are paid family-supporting wages that value the important recycling work they perform!

  1. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  2. Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you

  3. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  8. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
