"Hawk Tuah Girl" Hailey Welch works in a spring factory. What does that mean?

In her first interview since the one that made her famous, Hailey Welch appeared on the Barstool podcast PlanBri Uncut to squash some of the rumors surrounding her. When host Brianna LaPaglia, known to the internet as Brianna Chickenfry, asked Hailey about her job, she was quick to clarify that she was not, in fact, a preschool teacher.

"I worked in a spring factory. I'm not a schoolteacher," the 21-year-old said pointedly. "I'm not even old enough to be a teacher ... None of it's true. At all."

Reportedly, the spring factory that Hailey refers to in the interview was a bed spring factory in Belfast, Tenn. Although we don't know exactly what she was doing there, we can at least be sure that she was not fired from her job due to her "Hawk Tuah" fame. As a matter of fact, people around Hailey — including her parents — think the situation is hilarious.

Hailey also mentioned in the same interview that she plans to pursue a career in Hollywood, although only time will tell where that leads. However, if that doesn't work out, she can always fall back on the $65,000-plus that she's earned in merch so far.
