These San Francisco worker-owners and 1000 of their co-workers have spent years dedicated to the service of our communities and neighborhoods.

But now, they are being victimized by the criminal behavior of corrupt SF city officials and former corporate executives. 

Because of this criminal behavior, which these workers had nothing to do with, opportunistic corporate entities will likely take advantage of the situation by putting their jobs out to bid. This will eliminate these workers' ownership in their company along with a substantial loss of hard-earned ownership savings.

But you, as a Bay Area Resident, can help them keep their employee ownership and their ownership savings.

Hear their stories.

The next time you see your recycling and garbage collector, why don't you give them a wave. They'll appreciate it!

"Normally I go through my day without even thinking about who collects garbage and recycling.  After becoming part of CAN(Community and Neighbors) I wave to my collector whenever I see her.  It's a reminder of the important and under-appreciated work she does."

"My cousin works in the San Francisco recycling facility.  What he tells me of how hard their work is, and how proud he is to be an employee-owner, always inspires me."
