I think this Labor Day we should also honor honor these workers for helping keep our communities protected against environmental dangers.

Hazardous materials would be minimized if highly taxed rather than subsidized.
The oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico are operating under a 75 million liability cap and nominal royalties. This is hazardous to both economy and environment.

I did this work in Baltimore City for about a year and its was the toughest job anyone could even want. Hazardous conditions, long hours, low pay, and no benefits…I hope these things have changed for the better?

I still do miss being inside a latex tank cleaning it out or responding to an oil spill when you know that your hard work will make the environment safer for all.

I do not miss moving 200lbs drums around but someone has to do it and the rewards are more than finnancial.
Thanks!
