  • I doubt they make $43k in my town or everyone would want to be a garbage collector. That is more than jobs pay around her that require Bachelor's degrees.

  • Depends according to where you live.  A noble profession and I appreciate what they do for society.

  • Sometimes I think I would rather pick up trash than deal with the people who made it! And for that much $$ hey it sounds decent to me.
