Many janitors report that they were assaulted while cleaning hotels, shopping malls and even the San Francisco Ferry Building. These women have been largely invisible to the government agencies in charge of keeping workers safe on the job.
One such woman, Georgina Hernandez, is pouring a glass of juice for her 4-year-old daughter in a tiny apartment near downtown Los Angeles. Racks of colorful blouses and skirts take up most of the living room. She earns extra money selling clothes at swap meets.
