New York City is being forced to deploy an army of 10,000 cleanup workers in response to worsening problems with trash and rats.

After a $100 million cut to the city’s sanitation budget, filth and rodent infestations have become a common sight, with data revealing that waste tonnage rose 15% by the end of March compared to the early months of the pandemic.

The city’s trash problem was further exacerbated last year when officials re-located the homeless to higher end neighborhoods and hotels in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID.

Even before the pandemic, rat sightings reported to the city’s hotline surged by 38% between 2018 and 2019.
