-  Summary of audio segment: Worked in factory, working in a lab, electronics, then became a floor lady. But decided she wanted to get ahead, looked around, saw people working in the same place for years, Then what happens, the factories leave Paterson and people are left with no jobs. That's what happening today. And they're too old to get work opportunities go to younger people. So a lot of ladies who come into LG's shop have been left with nothing.
