The Jersey Journal reports (via nj.com) that Renée Meyers and Gail Krone, who work as cleaners at the County Administration Building on Newark Avenue in Jersey City, New Jersey, asked a supervisor about whether there were bed bugs in the holding cells:
“All we wanted was someone to tell whether the holding cells in the Central Judicial Processing Court are infested with bed bugs,” said Meyers, a Hudson County Maintenance Department employee. “But instead of giving me an answer, my supervisor screamed ‘I hate you! I hate you!’ and refused to tell us anything about the situation.”
The cells were indeed treated for bed bugs back in December (prior to this conversation of 12/28), so perhaps it is a sensitive area for the management?
The women claim they were split up and given more work after asking about bed bugs.
