    An old commercial for a bathroom cleaner has gone viral again for its disturbing and, according to some critics, sexist content. 

    In 2009, Method — a company that prides itself in making "planet-friendly" cleaning products — released an advertisement promoting Shiny Suds, a bathroom cleaner. The video, which is just over a minute long, begins with a woman greeting a group of animated suds. The commercial then cuts to a scene in which the woman walks into a bathroom and undresses. She opens the shower curtains and appears visibly shocked as a number of suds greet her.

    The protest signs read “Could you live on $8.46 cents?”

    About 24 janitors, mostly women, marched and held up brooms in front of  Miami’s tallest office tower — the Southeast Financial Center in the heart of downtown. 

    A commercial janitor holds a broom with a sign that reads 'Justice' in Spanish. Commercial cleaners in Miami are part of a new push to unionize, decrying low wages.

    Most large office buildings outsource their janitorial services to cleaning companies. Those companies often hire contract workers. Compared to other parts of the state, South Florida’s contracted office cleaners earn among the lowest wages and there's a new push to unionize this workforce. 

    Commercial janitors  in Miami-Dade  are predominantly immigrant women from across Latin America and the Caribbean. They typically earn less than $9 an hour.

    Cleaning the house is a never-ending chore. In California, early fall means kids' soccer games, messy football Sundays in the living room, busy weeks and even busier weekends.


    Whether you're a professional or a parent trying to keep up with children's messes, a professional cleaning service can free up a lot of time. Depending on the services you choose, housekeepers can help with everyday chores like vacuuming, dusting and mopping as well as more complex needs like laundry and organizing.

    We all know someone who "cleans up" before the maid service comes, so what do these helpers actually do? The answer depends on the package you choose. Standard maid services typically include a full kitchen and bathroom clean, vacuum, dust, linen change and dish washing. These can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

Flu symptoms also tend to be more severe overall. Meanwhile, fevers and headaches are rare with a cold but more common with the flu.


    The CDC created a handy infographic that lists nine symptoms and how they stack up:

    Julian was employed by a contractor for the arena, Service First Janitorial.

    His mother said he was saving money to visit his girlfriend in Mexico for the holidays.


    "He was very happy, very loving," his mother said in Spanish. "He took good care of me."
