I toured a predecessor plant over 50 years ago. We were allowed to walk on the floor of the plant past the place where molten steel was poured.
As the laid off UAW woman who was on the catwalk to answer questions and employed at a much lower salary than she had been when she was on the line at another plant, “OHSA wouldn’t approve of that now.”
It was quite an experience for a teen in the mid-1950′s. I remember it’s being just cavernous. The ceilings were so high.
