    • lucid_eye

      yeah that will fix the problem hippie.

      • lovemethefrench

        It won't fix the problem, but what's up with all the boxes? Either way, it looks like Toronto when their garbage guys went on strike.

    • anotherItalianChiver

      vaffanculo, or piss off, your choice.

    • 3rd Italian

      Yah fuck off .
      . At least the mafia buries our trash in ditches and farmers fields

    • 4th Italian

      How many Italians does it take to defend their nation? Four. Go fuck yourself.

    • fuckyou

      Still not clear…soooooooooo…..Italy?

      • fabio

        No. It isn't., but could be.
        @ the 4 italian guys above: thanks to Naples and its Camorra, our country it's also known for these kind of shit. Don't be too outraged. It's actual.

    • Ben#2

      lived in Italy for almost four years now near Naples and I have seen it look like this a few times because of strikes. smells terrible… Northern Italy is a lot nicer though. Its a shame most of the European countries using the euro are hurting.

  • Zappa

    Do they prefer to live with all this trash around? I mean, what it is so impossible to carry the trash by yourself to the city's disposal? There is always way, just some community spirit from time to time. Fuck siesta and get things done!

    • Chaosd

      It's Europe, they don't have the work ethic that other countries do.

      • Zappa

        Spain doesn't define Europe, yet there are stereotypes of all sorts from country to country. This is the example of one them. We've become selfish, and too worried about our problems and good being.

    • Johnsonator

      Just came back from London. Met Spaniards collecting unemployment from Spain while secretly employed in the UK. Apparently that's pretty common.

    • Nbree

      Well, I'm going on the assumption that they are living literally, in the city. In which not all of them might have transportation. Honestly, if NYC's trash workers went on strike, I don't know what I would do, other than put it out where it usually goes.

      I don't have a car. Can't walk to the city's disposal (about 11 miles, I believe). You can't take it on the train. A cab wouldn't pick you up with that. And I certainly am not hiring a private car and paying $40 one way to drive me to the dump. So..

      I think the city needs to stop short-changing the workers that make it a decent place to live. Don't cut their pay and raise their hours. Then you wouldn't have them on strike.

  • tv_paul

    #3 "Euro trash" I though it meant something else.

  • Eric

    The crack fox will be very happy!!

  • FoolOfATook

    At least it's winter, imagine that in summer!

  • SkillinVillain

    When the strike is over, who do you think is going to clean it? If they wanted to hurt the "man" they should have kept working but took 2x as long and make 2x the $ while management scrambles to figure it out, your city is still clean (other people not effected) and you are making OT pay…. Instead you make 0$ and your city looks like shit, the other people don’t feel for your cause….

    • MonkeyMadness

      Exactly my thoughts!

    • David

      Any clue as to what the word SALARY means?
      They would be working twice as long for 5% less than what they were getting before.

      Now, if they were HOURLY it would be a different story altogether.

  • rico

    if the workers are on strike and the government is not paying the workers then why not just get someone else to do it

    • thom

      Exactly, fire everyone one of them.

    • RobBob

      No kidding. Spain has massive unemployment. If you're not going to do your job get out of the way for someone willing to work.

  • SilentWrath

    Cut scene to six months from now when everyone is wondering why Spain is having trouble with the bubonic plague…

  • Nick

    The unemployment rate over there is 25%+ and these guys have the balls to go on strike? Fire those a-holes. Although it may be tough to teach a whole new crew to toss a bag of trash in a truck.

    • thom

      The garbage men here in the Seattle area, with their benefits and retirement accounts, make nearly $100,000 a year. They had the balls to threaten a strike last year, not even because they were getting a pay cut, but because their raise wasn't as big as they wanted.

      • fabio

        Wait…. $100.000 ???. WTF! The american dream is still alive! I'm coming there too.

    • DoubleNickelJP

      Well said. Sometimes you need to step up and stfu. I'm making %15 less this year as opposed to last while working more hours. Times are tough, make some sacrifices for the sake of keeping a job.

  • slt

    The gang solves the trash crisis!

  • FLChiver

    That's what we get for letting Tony Soprano control waste management.

  • Eddie13

    Nothing a gallon of gasoline and a match can't fix!!

  • Unions suck

    Fire every single one of them, hire non-union workers. Unions had their place, a long time ago. Now they are unnecessary and drive costs way up.

  • wmcritter

    This is why unions are evil and should be outlawed.

    In a free market, the company could hire new people to come in and haul the trash for a reasonable salary. Seriously, picking up trash is not skilled labor, anybody that is not disabled can do it. When a union forces the company to pay $20 an hour + benefits for unskilled labor, it increases the cost to the consumer and eliminates competition and the free market. These are all bad for the consumer.

    Unions should be outlawed.

    • James

      These people have kids, morgages etc. Someone should cut your salary and benefits you dumb fuck. And picking up trash doesn't require skill no, but who the fuck wants to pick up other peoples garbage? That's why they get paid well. I can't beleive how ignorant you are.

    • AnEmployer

      If unions were outlawed, you'd have no teachers teaching and no nurses nursing. Unions are the ones who invented work benefits and minimum wage. If employers had the choice, they'd pay you a nickel for a days worth of work.

      • ThatGuy

        And work benefits and minimum wage are why we are 16 trillion in debt with 9% unemployment respectfully.

        Do you even economics, bro?

    • Thomas138

      You can thank Unions for a 40 hour work week and any other number of benefits, your over privileged ass takes for granted.
