CHINESE WARNED AGAINST BEATING UP "BEAUTICIANS"
China's vice construction minister has promised strict punishment for anyone
beating up the country's long-suffering garbage collectors as they try to
deal with a rising tide of human and household waste.
Impatient commuters often hit road cleaners and garbage collectors to get
them out of the way.
Li Zhendong said these workers were the "beauticians" of the cities and
deserved the respect of every citizen.
Wonder if they give pedicures?
