Carwash workers across the country are routinely abused, intimidated and exploited. They’re routinely subjected to health/safety hazards and often end up with severe kidney damage, respiratory problems and nerve deterioration. The CLEAN Carwash Campaign partnered with Cuentame to produce the following video, allowing carwasheros/as to share their personal experiences with others.
