The $100,000 job: Garbage workers

Molina and his co-worker, Tony Sankar, have been picking trash together for a decade in New York City.

Molina made $112,000 last year as a garbage truck driver and Sankar made $100,000 as a helper, riding on the back of the truck. Their wages have grown in eight of the last nine years, according to their bosses, brothers David and Jerry Antonacci, owners of Crown Container, a waste management company.

It also says, "...most trash workers are doing better than high school dropouts ". Only "most??" That's interesting.

Also that the national average is 40 grand.

It's easy to be awed at the top end of anybody's possible wage scale, but the average tells the truth.

Barry, I'm almost proud of you for this post. You just showed context.

You remind me of a story.

A young actor said to an older actor, "I guess you have to ignore the bad reviews." The older actor replied, "You also have to ignore the good ones!!!"
