Disgusting But True

“I Stopped The Mop”

We totally got rid of mops. They don’t do a good job; they’re not cost effective. New technology has made mopping obsolete. I find it amazing that mops are still being used as much as they are. Why would I make my employee use a dirty, nasty mop? The dignity of the worker matters.
