City officials feel squeegee work needs to come to an end in Baltimore. Mayor Brandon Scott has launched a new 90-day action to help place squeegee workers into stable jobs.
According to Deputy Mayor Faith Leach, the plan involves the city’s outreach team engaging with young people who are working on street corners. They are going to connect them with resources to employment.

‘Youth squeegeeing is a visible representation of broken systems,” said Leech at a press conference Tuesday.
Ten squeegee workers will be provided with a job at Canopy by Hilton Hotel in Baltimore’s Harbor Point. They will have the chance to try working as a bellhop or in the hotel’s restaurant.
The Mayor’s plan will launch next month.
