Gaudet was a female electrician who repaired machinery at S.D. Warren for roughly ten years. She provides a vivid picture of the challenging, dangerous, and rewarding work fixing the large machines that can be found in Warren's 13 acre facility. The central story is of a severe injury. Following the injury, Gaudet spent years fighting the company's lawyers who sought to deny her workers' compensation. At the time of the interview she was studying business administration at the University of Southern Maine.
