My girlfriend was walking our dog alone in our neighborhood one morning when she walked past a crew of city-contracted workers. They waited until she had her back turned to whistle at her.
This group of men could easily see which home she lived in from where they were working. This did not make her feel good or safe. This is also not the first time she has been catcalled within 100 feet of our home.
I feel like my tax money just paid for men to sexually harass my girlfriend. The city needs to hold their contracted crews accountable. If the companies on the city payroll are making our neighborhoods feel less safe, then they don’t deserve the work.
After a few phone calls with the city, I believe that they do take this very seriously, so I still encourage people to call in if they feel things are happening that need to be reported so the companies can be held accountable.
