We’re excited to announce that Lauren Kaori Gurley is joining the economics team as The Post’s labor reporter.
Washington Post hires Gurley to cover labor
Washington Post business editor Lori Montgomery, economics editor Damian Paletta and deputy economics editor Jen Liberto sent out the following on Tuesday:
Before Vice, Lauren worked as a reporter-researcher at the New Republic. Her reporting also has been featured by ProPublica, NPR, the New York Review of Books, the American Prospect and In These Times. Apropos for a labor reporter, her first jobs included gallery guard, waitress and barista.
A native of Southern California, Lauren graduated from the University of Chicago with a degree in comparative literature. She also holds a master’s degree in journalism and Latin American studies from New York University. She lives in Brooklyn with her outspoken terrier, Pacho, but they both look forward to starting a new chapter in Washington.
Please join us in welcoming Lauren to the newsroom. Her first day is July 11.
