Schultz: A lesson from Ohio after Tuesday’s election
Two weeks before the election, I stood on a factory floor in Springfield, Ohio, and watched a woman my age crawl around a giant cab of a tractor-trailer. She moved with the grace of a human spider.
A 20-year veteran at the plant, she was responsible for double-checking other workers’ jobs as the truck made its way to the end of the production line. Her movements were seamless and seemingly effortless. The muscles in her arms flexed as she pulled herself from one spot to another, her legs darting left and right. When she caught a glimpse of my wide-eyed stare, she grinned and kept moving.
It was a crystalizing moment, standing less than two feet away from her as she worked. A core narrative of the presidential race had unfolded right in front of me.
