    Fabricantes de sofás haciendo mascarillas: el prodigioso vuelco de un pueblo trabajador

    «El hospital de Yecla se puso en contacto con mi jefe, con la idea de que pudiéramos fabricar mascarillas, con idea de pagarlas. Pero mi jefe se ofreció a fabricarlas voluntariamente»
    La crisis de 2008 azotó sin piedad una ciudad murciana, Yecla, que durante décadas había hecho riqueza con una industria pujante de muebles de gama alta. La caída del sector inmobiliario arrastró consigo esta ciudad de obreros y emprendedores. En las carreteras que conectan este lugar remoto con las arterias de la capital, dejaron de verse las filas de camiones que habían sido el rostro visible de la fortuna. Muchas fábricas cerraron entonces, y los yeclanos tuvieron que inventar nuevas empresas.
    Los yeclanos tuvieron que aprender palabras nuevas, como grafeno. En el pueblo, apareció una industria de este material, fábricas de zapatillas para exportar, y algunas fábricas se convirtieron en restaurantes para celebrar bodas. Poco a poco, algunas de las industrias moribundas de muebles empezaron a despertarse, inmunizadas tras la penosa enfermedad. Mientras tanto, cientos de mujeres, despedidas de sus empleos, pasaron a coser tapicerías en el interior de talleres minúsculos o en sus propias casas, con los maridos arrimando el hombro. más información
