Cambridge, MA Bans Plastic Bags, Not Plastic People
Three issues remain unaddressed. Reusable bags get dirty and accumulate bacteria which is brought into homes. Not a benefit to the health of residents and shoppers. Secondly cashiers and front end managers will be required to enforce this ordinance. Will the city compensate the businesses for the time spent by employees working for the city enforcing this nuisance? Thirdly how much of police resources will be spent responding to disputes about this nuisance which endangers cashiers?
