We need some factories here in Humboldt County and especially here in Eureka.
We don't need to turn ourselves into China. We don't need sweatshops. We must insist that our factories do not adversely effect our environment or quality of life. We must insist that the employees of the factory be represented by an independent union, and also that the employees have some ownership of the enterprise.
We do need places (factories) that produce things of value to us and also provide a reasonable place for people to work.
We also need some factories here for survival in these uncertain times. We need reasonable local production of the basics of life - food, shelter, and clothing.
I suggest that we start with a basic clothing factory. A factory to turn out shirts and pants for men, women and children.
I also welcome suggestions for other types of factories that might thrive here.
