Who Knew Houston Was Such a Union Town?

There’s currently a giant rat outside the Wedge International Tower.
The rat’s keepers: Justice for Janitors.
The beef: The Wedge Group uses a company (unimaginatively) called Professional Janitor Service.

The press release: “PJS is resisting janitors’ efforts to negotiate over better pay and access to health care on the job and is undermining the union contract that Mayor Bill White called ‘a milestone in the history of the city of Houston and a more importantly something uplifting the lives of Houston residents who are just trying to get by every single day.’”
The result: A big rat in the middle of downtown. But you already knew that. – Keith Plocek
