People of Atwater Village: Francisco Reyes
Tengo 10 años trabajando en Atwater. Es un lugar muy tranquilo, muy bueno. Mi trabajo es machine shop. O sea fabricamos partes para la industria, para mezclar. Partes de stainless steel, acero, muchas cosas. Todo se fabrica aquí, todo lo hacemos nosotros, todo es U.S.A. Mi trabajo es una cosa muy bonita, lo quiero mucho, y como te dije, hay que ser responsable, hay que trabajar, hay que triunfar en este país, y eso es todo, nada más hay que tener fuerza y hacer lo que tu sabes hacer.
I've been working in Atwater for 10 years. It's a really good place, very tranquil. I work as a machinist. In other words we make parts for industry. We make stainless steel parts, iron, lots of things. Everything is made here, by us, Made in the U.S.A. My job is great, I love it very much, and like I said, one has to be responsible, one has to work, be triumphant in this country, that's all, you just have to be strong and do what you know how to do.
