Hard Labor: Economic Threats to U.S. Workers

Aug 24, 2012

The Center for Public Integrity and NPR are partnering on Hard Labor, an occasional series on health, safety and economic threats to U.S. workers. In a feature story on Morning Edition, WBUR's Curt Nickisch reports on the most dangerous work in the nation: scallop and ground fishing off the New England Coast. Ongoing coverage of black lung in the mining industry from NPR's Howard Berkes is also part of the Hard Labor project.
