FOREST CITY, Iowa (AP) - Recreational vehicle manufacturer Winnebago Industries says it is celebrating the career of one of its employees, a man who has worked at the company for 50 years.
The Forest City-based company says Harlan Rodberg reached the milestone on Monday.
Rodberg began working at age 19 as an electrician on Feb. 24, 1964. He says he started out at $1.25 an hour on the invitation of a friend. He says there wasn't much to do on the farm in the winter so he decided to give it a shot and he fell in love with the work.
He has worked in a variety of positions including foreman, production supervisor and his current position as special repairer.
