BE&K had gotten the reputation of being a union buster. The union at this paper mill, had been kicked out and BE&K, took over the "rebuild". All BE&K employees lived in a man camp which consisted of (9) double-wide trailers. Most of the BE&K employees were bused to and from the man camp to the mill. Union members were setting fire to cars with out of state tags, a lot of the stores refused to serve you. International Falls is known as the "icebox of the nation". In Octo-ber it was getting down in the low teens.

Reason for leaving: One and the main one was the on-going threat by union members to do physical damage to your vehicle and bodily harm to you personally. Right before I left the union members were driving by the man camp and shooting into the mobile homes. Federal Marshals were called in as a result of these union problems. The second reason was the frigid weather.
