Meet Richard Hayes. He Picks Up Mitt Romney's Trash.

We recently viewed an ad that set Mitt Romney's words to images of those representing the 47 percent that he disparaged. Now let's view an AFSCME ad that presents the perspective of Richard Hayes, San Diego sanitation worker who picks up the trash from Romney's $12 million oceanfront villa in La Jolla, California. Hayes sees himself as one of the "invisible people": those who provide essential yet unrecognized services that make Romney's life comfortable. Watch:

RICHARD HAYES: My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up Mitt Romney's trash. We'll call it the invisible people. He doesn't realize that the service we provide -- if it wasn't for us, it would be a big health issue, us not picking up trash.

Residents do come out and shake our hands. Sometimes they give us hugs and thank us for the job we're doing, hand us water and Gatorades. Tell us we're doing a good job and keep up the good work. Picking up 15, 16 tons by hand, that takes a toll on your body. When I'm 55, 60 years old, I know my body's gonna be break down [sic]. Mitt Romney doesn't care about that.
