Jugovinil, an ex-socialist PVC factory situated in the city of Kastela is the subject matter of this paper. The factory was functional in socialism and employed about 3500 workers, simultaneously developing the city socioeconomically and destroying it ecologically. At the center of this paper are the memories from workers' lives, focused on the time period they spent working in Jugovinil. Those memories often shape themselves in life stories formed as anecdotes and facenda. Stories provided by the informants are entirely reproduced in this paper, along with a short review of the circumstances in which these stories were made, and in which they were told. This paper is a small contribution to the ethnological and cultural anthropological research of the city of Kastela and it also brings a small representation of the insufficiently researched oral literature.
