Working in America is a multi-platform interactive chronicling the everyday challenges, triumphs and realities of working. Within the common thread that everyone has a relationship to work, this powerful visual and audio initiative is inspired by the 40th anniversary of Studs Terkel’s influential publication, Working, as a springboard for a contemporary conversation about the meaning of work and the physical and psychological realties of working in America today.
