Character Background Sheet: Worker at Flow Automations Factory

Character Background Sheet

Worker at Flow Automations Factory

You are employed as an assembler at the Flow Automations factory. Prior to this job, you worked for the Flowing Railroad.

Your purpose at the meeting is to learn as much as you can about the problems at the site and the cleanup being proposed. You feel like you are being asked to choose a "side" on this issue but you are confused. You have a number of concerns about the situation but no one answer seems to satisfy them.

You are a single parent with three young children. On the one hand, you need your job at Flow Automations; you have no other source of income. Besides that, Flowing Railroad was good to you; the company got you the job at Flow Automations and paid for the training you needed to do it. On the other hand, you and your children live near the site and you have the children's health and well-being to consider.
