"I graduated from high school in 1967, that same week I started in the mill in the business planning department, I started running a multilith machine. In 1969 the consent decree was passed and women could apply for non traditional jobs in the plant. I was the first woman awarded the job as a laborer. To my chagrin, the men were not happy to have me. My first job....clean out the railroad cars. I had a ladder to climb in, once inside I had no way out. Oh, and by the way, no bathroom. I also held a job as the acid tester, still no bathroom and no other women.
