We're you the guy who would shove lint in his pants and go around saying, "Hey, have you ever picked any cotton?"

I have family members who worked for the Mill.. I worked there for a short time while it was Chiquola.. But Mom and Dad worked there as JP Stevens and JPS Converters for years and years.

I worked there for 2 years before i got laid off.. The start of the shut down began with a worker named Willie Cradic. He wanted to be trained as a machine operator and because he had such a short time till retirement they would not train him for that position.He got mad and put poly cotton on a cotton frame and it go up to 250,000$ in waste before it was ever caught. Its sad that this one man alone was the reason for the shutdown because a remendous amont of materials was lost
