In The Moment ... May 7, 2018 Show 331 Hour 1

As we celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week, we also take a look at the struggles of a tourism-based economy. Jennifer Sherman is Associate Professor of Sociology at Washington State University. Her research looks at the ways in which job loss, poverty, and economic strain affect families, particularly in rural U.S. communities.

She's author of the book Those who Work, Those who Don't: Poverty, Morality, and Family in Rural America.
