72-year employee of Goodyear plant retires

(Birmingham News) “Mister Sid” has finally called it a day.

Sidney Richardson, 90, retired last week from Gadsden’s Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. plant, 72 years after he was hired.

Richardson was the longest-serving hourly Goodyear employee for the corporation worldwide.

More than 9,000 employees have been hired at the plant since Richardson, as attested by his time clock card – No. 0912. New employee cards have passed the 10,000 mark. He was the only remaining employee with a “zero” number.
