Snow Laborers
Register Now

    The New York City Department of Sanitation has announced that starting today, people interested in working as emergency snow laborers for the upcoming snow season should register at their local Sanitation garage. Snow laborers are per-diem workers who shovel snow and clear ice from bus stops, crosswalks, fire hydrants and step streets in the City after heavy snowfalls.
