Outsourced Jobs and Poisoned Water
The Wilson Quarterly has just published “Outsourced Jobs and Poisoned Water: An American Town Fights For Survival,” by London-based journalist Caitlin Randall. I contributed photographs. The story chronicles the efforts of a fading mill town, Hoosick Falls, N.Y., to revive its economy, only to learn that its municipal water supply and scores of private wells were contaminated with a suspected carcinogen, PFOA.
Randall’s piece appears in a themed issue of the Quarterly, The Decline of the American Middle Class. http://bit.ly/hoosickfalls The photos posted here are outtakes from the assignment.
