This interview is one of a series conducted with former employees of the Huntington Owens-Illinois, Inc. glass bottle factory. Mr. Robson worked at Owens for twenty-nine years, before which he was employed at the St. Claire Glass Company in Ceredo, Ohio. In the interview Mr. Robson describes his experiences at both factories as a skilled worker: a mold maker. The mold makers had their own union and enjoyed more status and a higher salary than the other workers at Owens. Mr. Robson ends the interview with his forecast for the economic climate of Huntington, West Virginia.
