These people are exposed to filth and disease every day through the day because of the work they do and the conditions under which they perform this absolutely essential service for the city that is proud to call itself India’s tech capital. These workers get no gloves, no masks or protective gear of any kind. Sifting through muck with their bare hands and riding in the solid waste collecting three- and four-wheelers, sitting atop the garbage, is routine for them. They make subsistence wages.
