Welcome to the StoryCorps podcast. Two stories in this episode, in both we will hear about life shaped by big steel.

 

For more than a century, US steel Homestead Works was the flagship mill of the American steel industry. At its height, the mill was one of the world’s largest producers of steel.

 

But in the mid 1980s, the Homestead mill shut its doors and thousands lost their jobs.

 

Betty Esper, a desk clerk at the mill, was one of them. Here she tells her friend Mark Fallon about what Homestead was like when the mill was still thriving.

 

Businesses never closed till 9 or 10 o’clock at night, because there was always something going on. And the avenue was full of two things: bars and churches. I always laughed when I told people, “I don't know if we drank and prayed, or prayed and drank.”

 

So you started to work in the mill in 1951. How did you get your job?

 

I started out as a messenger, started out at the bottom, so, you know, was my way up. It was my only job. You know such a busy place owned my life, watching in and coming in and out, and knew the guards at the gate. You spent more time in the mill than you spent at home, and it was like my family.

 

How many years did you end up working at the mill?

 

36.

 

So your last year would’ve been when the mills closed.

 

Exactly! And it was a funny feeling. I drove out of the mill, my last day, and when I drove out of the mill; there wasn't one soul at the gate. And I said, "My God, 36 years and I don't have nobody even say goodbye to."

 

When the mills did shut down, it affected people’s lives to an extent that saw was unfathomable(深不可测的).

 

Yeah, it did affect a lot of people. And they were loyal people, loyal to the core and what the hell did it get them? I mean if you are a man 40 years old, and you lose your job. You gotta get your kid out of college. You gotta get rid of your car and you’ve lost some mortgage supply on your house.

 

I knew acquaintances that became alcoholics. I knew guys that their marriages went on the blink because of it , suicides. This is tough time.

 

I have always heard stories that people felt the mills would come back. Did you have that feeling or…?

 

You know, it's just like saying your father, mother will never split up(断绝关系). And you never imagine that that could happen. It is just hard to know that something that was so big and great is not coming back.

 

Betty Esper and Mark Fallon in Homestead, Pennsylvania. Today Betty Esper is the mayor of Homestead. She’s held the position for the past 18 years.
