A group of workers lived for 28 days to produce raw materials which will be used for N95 masks and hospital gowns finally went home.
Workers at Brasken America in Delaware County, Pennsylvania left the factory for the first time this week after hunkering down to do their bit for the coronavirus pandemic.
About 40 employees unanimously decided to live at their job and work 12-hour shifts every day to help battle the Covid-19 outbreak. They had been working to produce polypropylene, a material used to make N95 masks, sanitary napkins and hospital gowns among other critical items.
‘We’re truly honored to be able to give back and support people we will never meet in some way,’ operations shift supervisor Joe Boyce said.
Boyce went on to say that he and his workers were just doing their part to help their country, thanking health care workers battling the virus on the front lines.
“All the first responders, all the people on the front lines, we thank you. That’s what makes our job easy to do.” Boyce added
