Industrial Chemicals Workers
Workers in industrial chemicals plants make all the products previously mentioned plus thousands more. Basic chemicals such as sulfuric acid, nitric acid, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, sodium chloride, and ammonia are made by giant companies. The demand for these products is so great that only large companies can afford to build the factories and buy the equipment and the raw materials to produce these chemicals at the low prices for which they sell them. On the other hand, these giant companies rarely make specialty chemicals because they either can't afford to or they don't wish to make the necessary investment due to the very limited market. Those products are made by small companies.
