Your Call 072507 Trash Talk

Why is garbage still sitting on East Bay streets? On the next Your Call we'll talk about the trash lock-out in Alameda County. Waste Management Inc,. the nation's garbage collector with revenues of $12 billion dollars, is fighting the Teamsters over benefits, pay and punishments. Is this what happens when cities privatize essential public services? Has Waste Management been picking up white people's trash faster than black people's trash during the lock-out? What kind of accountability should the union members have, both to the company they work for and the public they serve? Has the trash been picked up where you live? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
