You make some great points, especially regarding MSDS information. Hiring someone not qualified in that area could result in large fines.
We can't address literacy on a national level unless we can make the students understand it's almost impossible to find work with at least a nominal ability to read English.
A forward thinking solution would be to have those successful in the janitorial/cleaning industry speak out in local commission meetings, participate in career days, do as you do and write about it themselves and/or to interview on local talk shows/news programs with the mission in mind to increase the literacy of future owners/ employees.
A current solution might be to check with local community colleges about their literacy programs and ask to either speak at a class or ask them to incorporate your concerns into both curriculum offerings and advertising for their services.
I certainly have been made more aware of the problem and I'm in the industry. Thanks for all you do.
