    If that’s true, and I don’t really know, it’s probably only in some wealthy cities in the USA. I’m pretty sure garbage collection is among the worst jobs in most countries… but again I could be totally wrong.

    It’s true in some cities:

    TIL If you throw in overtime, garbage collectors can make up to $85,000 a year in the United States.

    But because of unions/mafia almost impossible to get those jobs in some cities, like NYC

    From the Reddit comments….

    “I applied a few years a ago, I was one of fifty applicants for three open positions.”

    “The chances of working for the sanitation department in NYC is like winning a fucking lottery.”

    “Yep, I’m number five thousand and something on the list. I think you can make more than 85k here in NYC though with seniority and OT”
