Workers sleep at job for 28 days to make gear for health care workers
At Braskem America in Marcus Hook, workers are sleeping, eating, and working at their plant for 28 days to make equipment for health care workers. They’re operating, 24/7, 12-hour shifts. The group met with managers trying to figure out how they could do something to help in America's battle against COVID-19. The group split among two shifts to make polypropylene, a non-woven fabric used to make N95 masks, hospital gowns, hoods, and sanitary wipes all critical in the coronavirus battle. The company gave them an increase in wages and provided beds, kitchens, groceries, internet access, and iPads.
