Working in Winnipeg

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 14/8/2009 (2926 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Thirty-five years ago, American writer Studs Terkel travelled across America talking to people about their jobs.

Some of their stories were uplifting. Others were sad, reflections of dreams unrealized.

Terkel presented them all honestly and compassionately.

Columnist Lindor Reynolds' occasional series, Working in Winnipeg, examines the jobs of ordinary people, be they cocktail waitresses or 7-Eleven clerks.

They tell the story of our city, where we've come from and how we see our work.
