We rely on jobs for financial stability, but with everything going on right now, many people haven’t been able to work. It’s only really those who provide essential services – such as sanitation workers – that have been allowed to continue with their jobs in recent months. We rely on these crucial workers more than we realize, which is why one neighborhood showed their local garbage men just how much they appreciate them.
Another Day On The Job
It’s safe to say that Saul Scruggs and Keon Richardson weren’t expecting to be the center of attention when they showed up for work on June 26. However, after the sanitation workers began their shift, they were stopped on Miami Beach’s North Bay Road by the local residents. The men and women had gathered to say thank you to the two garbage men for everything they’d done. Despite the current situation, they’d continued to work their shifts day after day to ensure that Miami Beach remained clean and presentable.
Awarded For Their Efforts
Many people were there on that Friday morning to celebrate Scruggs’ and Richardson’s hard work, including Mayor Dan Gelber. He was there to award the two men with a declaration of appreciation, a gift that the sanitation workers were overwhelmed to receive. It was hard for the duo not to get emotional, but as the local residents asserted, the commendations were well-deserved.
A Positive Pairing
It wasn’t merely the men’s hard work and dedication that earned them this surprise party, but also their positive energy. The pair always seem to be smiling, and that joyfulness has perked up the people of Miami Beach. It’s kept their spirits high during such trying times, something that we could all probably do with a dose of right now.
Thanks to people like Saul and Keon, we still have a reason to smile, despite the many hardships the world currently faces.
