CMM Weekly News Recap—July 3, 2019
We have good news and bad news in the cleaning industry this holiday week. Minimum wage workers in New Jersey welcomed a pay increase this month. The increases will continue annually the next five years until minimum wage is at US$15 an hour in 2024.
The bad news is germs never take a summer vacation. Simple summer pastimes can lead to disease. A toddler died and three other children sickened after contracting E. coli from petting zoo animals.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that outbreaks of Cryptosporidium, a disease caused by waterborne parasites, have increased an average of 13% each year since 2009. Most people who come down with Crypto pick up the parasite at a pool or splash park.
More good news is we’re coming upon a four-day weekend. Enjoy the Fourth of July! CMM Daily News will return after the holiday weekend, on Monday, July 8.
