So we hear that you can make money with anything right? Selling dirt, picking up scrap, selling items online, and who knows what else is out there. There are businesses and products not even invented yet…and if you are the person that invents the “hot new thing,” then you can make money too.
Don’t Forget About The Garbage Men
Too many people out there take one major industry for granted and just because it is a dirty one…doesn’t mean that it is a bad one. Garbage is inevitable. We know that recycling will help eliminate many items from landfills, but the women and men that work on the backs of garbage trucks, in the landfills, and across all related industries are some of the hardest working people out there and many people take them for granted.
What If They Stopped Working?
You probably have heard the idea of what would happen if people stopped picking up the trash that the entire way of living would be in trouble. Garbage piling on the street, diseases all over the place, well, many of these things are true and you have to know that the garbage workers are integral (and often times well compensated) when it comes to the economy continuing to operate.
Being a trash man has many perks that we have talked about with a lot of scrappers in the past. Sometimes if you work for smaller private trash companies you are able to pick the scrap metal out of the garbage and sell it to a scrap yard and your boss won’t mind (everyone that we have talked to has said that they always ask for permission for this).
Garbage men are hard workers and when it comes to the blue collar industry are about as blue collar as they come. But the great thing about them is how hard they work and how much of an impact that they have all around them. They wake up early, work late, and while they probably become immune to the smell coming from the trucks, they pretty much deal with everything that comes their way.
