The Way We Work: Profiles Of The Employed

During these times of bad economic news, it's easy to overlook the fact that millions of people in America still have work. NPR has launched a multimedia feature today called "The Way We Work" — three profiles of people and their careers.

Domonique Taylor is a 29-year-old native of Washington, D.C. He's working at a Target store on the night shift, unloading trucks and stocking shelves. The hours are not ideal, but they do give him a chance to spend his days looking for more meaningful work. As someone who's just spent seven years in prison, he's anxious to get something going. His dream is to start a non-profit organization to record music written by prison inmates.

Andrea is a recent graduate of NPR's Knight training — an immersion program to familiarize radio employees with multimedia and web-centric reporting.
