Spotlight on the Franklin Sign Plant - page 5

In the street sign section, James Kyles claims he has the best work crew in the entire plant, even though he said it's a challenge to know what kind of moods the inmates are going to be in from day to day. "They know their job," Kyles said. "As long as we've got work to do, they do it." One box of type III sheeting costs about $3,000 and is stored in the stock room where Clarence Medlin works. Robert Choat is in charge of sheeting. The price ranges from 69 cents a square foot for engineering grade sheeting to $2.75 a square foot for a higher grade. The first coat of color is put on the sheeting at this stage.
