There are great people in this industry

Although the national media will more often than not report bad news pertaining to the jan/san industry, there are times when I come across a story that exemplifies the warmth and kindness that I see every day in our readers. Today, I read an article about one custodial worker at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport that I felt compelled to share. 

As seen on
"Few would pass up the chance to snag a free iPad — particularly when it comes with a side of cash. But for one incredibly principled airport janitor, the temptation to make off with the swag gave way to his natural decency. Last month, Patrick Morgan found an iPad, and $13,000 stuffed in its case, at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Morgan alerted authorities, and the grateful owner slipped him $60, which he promptly gave to a homeless woman and a struggling colleague. Morgan was rewarded for his honesty: He got a plaque and reward from from airport managers and $625 from his employer." 

Now, some of you might say that these acts of decency/kindness are every-day in our industry. I would have to agree. For every negative national media story there is about our industry, there are five acts of kindness that go unreported. 

I have said it once, but I'll say it again: I am honored to work among you humbled to know you. Keep up the good work!
