  1. Dear Friend,

    Carwash workers across the country are routinely abused, intimidated and exploited. They are subjected to obscene labor abuses and health hazardous conditions. Car wash workers are the face of the new American sweatshop.

    Share the video on your Facebook wall today. Your friends and family need to be aware of these conditions before their next car wash!

    Don’t turn a blind eye to the abuse and the exploitation. Carwash workers, routinely subjected to health and safety hazards, often end up with severe kidney damage, respiratory problems and nerve deterioration. You can stop this.

    We need your help in exposing this travesty. Have you seen similar conditions at your local carwash? Post it today on our page – thousands will be able to read and follow your lead!
