Real Help for Real Journalists
The Center for Working-Class Studies has worked with journalists all around the world on stories about culture, economics, politics, and education. Along with offering expert commentary, we help journalists make contact with working-class people in the Youngstown area. In 2008, for example, we helped journalists from the Wall Street Journal, BBC, Nightly Business Report, and news services from Holland, Asia, and France talk with the right people, including focus groups of industrial and service workers.
We have contacts with real people who are facing real issues — current and former industrial workers, people who have lost jobs because of offshoring, service workers in health care, retail, and other areas, local union leaders, community organizers, and families that are struggling to get by in today’s economy.
For stories about area workers, visit our Worker Portraits website.
