I assume they have the same transportation issues Kubota has. If they start dropping out of the DC menial labor pool because they cannot afford to drive 100-to-150 miles round trip, then who will pick up the trash and sort the recycleables?
I wonder what kind of real-time indicators would show up in the news: Recycling centers closing? Help wanted? More restrictions on what can be put in the trash? Shifting from weekly to bi-weekly collection?
