Baltimore officials outline ‘holistic’ approach to luring squeegee workers from corners

July 28, 2022

Baltimore city officials on Wednesday shed new light on their efforts to support the as many as 160 youth who squeegee and get them away from dangerous, highly-trafficked intersections, emphasizing that they don’t plan to arrest their way out of the problem but rather take a holistic approach. The youth who squeegee are typically stationed at roughly 25 intersections, Deputy Mayor Faith Leach told City Council members, and dozens of volunteers are out on behalf of the city every day engaging with and learning more about the young people of Baltimore who take to the streets to earn money.
