From Middle Income to Poor: Downward Mobility among Displaced Steelworkers

Synopsis

Zippay charts the decline of displaced blue-collar workers in this case study of Pennsylvania's Shenango Valley, detailing the fallout of the past decade's shift from a manufacturing to a service-based economy. Challenging the assumption that these workers have been absorbed into the post-industrial economy, the volume questions the real nature of their occupational transition. Zippay uses data gathered from in-person interviews to delineate blue-collar downward lifestyle shifts and conveys a community portrait of industrial displacement.
