Talk about a crappy job… Pun intended! Oh, come on any city worker with a bottle of Clorox and a water hose with a nozzle can clean up the mess.
I used to think that the next big quake would cause San Francisco to sink into the ocean, but now I’m thinking that would be a major health risk.
Here’ an idea: How about spending the $800K on porta-potties discreetly placed in problem areas or would that just be too easy?
CRAP JOB? San Fran Spending $185,000 On Every Member Of Its ‘Poop Patrol’ https://t.co/R2kbZEpDGF

San Francisco may be suffering from an overwhelming “poop problem” but at least a few enterprising residents are making cash off the city’s forgiving policies on public elimination.
According to a recent report in the San Francisco Chronicle, the city has hired a team of five people (and one supervisor) whose only job is to patrol San Fran’s streets and sidewalks looking for — and cleaning up — human waste. But applications for the “crap job” weren’t exactly pouring in, so the city made being a member of its “poop patrol” worth workers’ whiles, offering up to $185,000 in salary and benefits to every member of its human waste task force.
The Chronicle reports that city has already instituted “the new $830,977-a-year Poop Patrol to actively hunt down and clean up human waste,” and then adds, casually, in parentheses, the real cost of the job. “By the way, the poop patrolers earn $71,760 a year, which swells to $184,678 with mandated benefits.”
Of course, you still have to clean up human waste for a living (and live in San Francisco, where a $100,000 salary barely covers the cost of living). More
Considering the median income in SF is $78,378 and one needs to make about $333,000 a year to afford a house combined with the nature of the work, I’d say these people don’t make nearly enough.

Does the poop patrol have their own uniforms? Cause that would be hilarious.

That makes sense pay 200k per employee to clean poop of the streets instead of kicking the poopers out of the city. Then again if your a liberal politician you don’t want to kick out your voter base.
