Sanitation jobs 'offer stability'

UNIVERSITY graduates are being urged to consider the public sanitation industry as a career.

The work is not just sweeping the streets and is "stable and relatively well paid," the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau said on an online forum yesterday.

"The IT and financial industries may cut employees, but we won't," said bureau director Ma Yun'an.

"Students can get more than 2,000 yuan (US$285) for the first year. And the pay will rise."

Ma said working in public sanitation industry was no longer an unskilled profession.

Maintaining a clean environment was an increasingly high-tech industry.

Ma said the bureau's Luwan District branch recruited 30 graduates last year, all of whom had since been given management or technical posts.
