Reporting from Ohio: Steve Bennish talks about Dayton's economy and "Scrappers"
If you regularly read ManufactureThis, or receive morning/evening email updates (sign up for them here) from the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) you probably recognize the name "Steve Bennish."
Bennish is a reporter at the Dayton Daily News, and we frequently cite his articles as he reports on issues that are near and dear to us: labor, jobs, manufacturing ... all the good stuff!
But what you may not know is that Bennish is also quite a gifted photographer. Earlier this year, he released Scrappers: Dayton, Ohio, and America Turn to Scrap. Bennish's book documents in photos Dayton's economic travails and, in the absence of middle-income employment, how some of its residents have turned elsewhere to eke out a life.
Below, you will find an interview he did with David Sparks, a Dayton-based web journalist.
