This happens in the Netherlands too. It's a good way to protest, but really only hurting the one you want, the company, and not the customer.

That's great, but there are 2,384,600 janitors/ building cleaners employed in the US. Most young kids are expected to do little chores in the classroom but janitors take care of hallways, bathrooms, etc. It's a job that requires no formal education and keeps a lot of people employed.
