Devalue My Work, Devalue My Life:

High Risk Work in Times of Crisis.

Janitors, maids, housekeeping, physical plant, and orderlies; they are literally picking up after everyone else. What is a fair wage for people who make the world cleaner for others? Why are people who prepare “your space to your specifications” viewed as less critical, less valuable? Why does society believe they should be paid so low?
