Bob Elba has worked for the Union Pacific Railroad for the past 37 years. In that time he has seen Milwaukee and the surrounding area change dramatically.
Elba said that he’s witnessed the rail industry decline over the years, but he’s happy to see that it’s beginning to grow again. Elba expressed concern for local blue-collar workers who lost their jobs when the industry was at a low point, but said it’s nice to see those jobs coming back.
