Help wanted: Snow laborers needed for massive storm cleanup

NEW YORK — Snow laborers are needed to help clean up after 2018’s first massive storm is expected to dump half a foot of snow or more on Long Island, wreak havoc on Thursday’s commutes and won’t have a chance of melting away until, at the soonest, next week because of historically cold weekend temperatures.

Storm watches are already up for New York City, Long Island and much of New Jersey for snow beginning Wednesday night.

The laborers will earn $15 per hour, and $22.50 per hour after 40 hours on the job, city officials say.

Anyone interested in the snow-removal jobs can register with the city at any sanitation garage between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., according to the city’s website. Laborers must be at least 18, eligible to work in the U.S. and able to perform heavy physical labor.

Snow laborers are per-diem workers who shovel snow and clear ice from bus stops, crosswalks, fire hydrants and step streets in the City after heavy snowfalls.

Applicants must bring with them the following items to register for the position:

Two small photos (1.5 inch square). The photos must be the same style as those used for a passport.
Social Security card
