Megan Stringer has joined The Wichita Eagle as a labor reporter covering issues facing the working class, labor and employment.
“I’m thrilled to be here talking with workers in the Wichita area about what matters most to them. From our aviation manufacturing employees to our hospitality and service workers, I know the Wichita workforce includes people with diverse experiences and backgrounds.
“As I learn more about Wichita and its workforce, I want to hear from you. This includes folks on the ground like community service providers and union leaders, but most importantly Wichita workers. Your voices will inform my coverage.”
