Marsha Dollarhite discusses her career as a plant security officer at the Fisher Body plant in Lansing, MI

Marsha talks about being one of only a few women on security, the dress code, gate duty, seniority, responding to accidents, and pulling crossing guard duty for the Verlinden elementary School. She discusses the tension and balance of representing management and keeping the plant safe and secure while being friendly and considerate of the UAW workers. Marsha discusses the effect the 1993 outsourcing of security to Pinkerton had on the officers.
