Package on Poverty
A couple weeks ago my friend Tom Meagher completed an impressive package on poverty for the Herald Morning News at New Jersey
. I missed blogging about it immediately, but hopefully I can bring up the rear and keep interest going in what is an evergreen but oft ignored story. Tom lived and worked undercover as a low wage laborer for a month, profling two immigrant laborers. Besides the package he has another article
on the topic today. I also blogged about the immigrant angle of the package over at Sepia Mutiny
. Check out Tom's work--it's good stuff, as always.
