  1. Russell was the largest employer in Albertville, AL and I think that its corporate HQ are still there.

    But they started manufacturing outside of the USA and now Albertville is on hard economic times.

    • I believe I shall never be succeesful in the corporate world. I understand putting out a product for as little as possible, but when it comes to draining the life out of a small town in order to do so — and then not paying a fair wage to the people at the site of my new factory, well, those are choices I don’t want to make.
