Re: “Hallmark cares enough to send the very best ... jobs to China

You all including the writer of this long article are young. Back when I was attending KU in the middle 1960’s I worked summer jobs at Hallmark Card Co. in Lawrence, KS. First I was a card selector, then an order filler then I did hand work on card then I worked a glue machine and did hand work on the cards. Everyone wants to remember the good old days then less talk the good old days. WHAT ARE YOU ALL CRAZY? Joyce Hall the saint? Less pretend for a minute you knew not everyone worked in KC, MO at the Headquarters. You thought he was great? Well I never ever saw him I was dirt I worked the lines. We got no free milk or tea from the nice lady pushing a cart? WHAT the are you talking about? Fresh treats out of the vending machines. This is me laughing. None of these problems would be happening if not for Joyce Hall. During 1964 / 65 era Unions tried to organize the Hallmark workers but we were told that if we even stopped to talk to them or so much as spoke a word to them even in the parking lot we’d be fired and before Joyce Hall would let us lowly works who worked for $100.00 a week he would fold up the company and move it to a place where people wanted a job with the Hallmark Card Company. Being in school at KU and my Husband also being a KU student I couldn’t afford to rock the boat, needless to say my little check meant we could pay rent and eat. So am I surprised that Hallmark is taking its jobs to China. NO. Try I’m surprised they have any jobs left in the USA. And don’t tell me what a great family man Joyce Hall was he was after making as much money as he could. They may all be rich but hopefully they are all also going to hell when they die. Since I worked there in a factory with no exits in case of a fire (well OK they had exits but you’d have died before you got to them!) and no windows in the factory to even see out of don’t tell me how great any of the Halls were it was like working as a slave in a rowing ship back in Roman times.
