Amanda Loder / StateImpact New Hampshire

With only one of its famed paper mills remaining, the North Country faces some big challenges in terms of economic development

Tomorrow on Morning Edition, NHPR will air the seventh and final installment of our summer series, “Getting By, Getting Ahead,” which focuses on the personal stories behind the economy.  This week, we’ll tell the story of a third-generation North Country mill worker who has been laid-off and re-hired twice.

If you want to learn more about the decline of mills in the North Country, check out our Economic Snapshot.  Or, for the condensed version, you can hear StateImpact reporter Amanda Loder’s discussion with NHPR’s All Things Considered host Brady Carlson below.

We also invite you to visit our special web feature, which includes an interactive map, economic perspectives from each of the people spotlighted in the series, and more information on each of New Hampshire’s regions.  And when you visit, you’ll have an opportunity to share your story of life during the economic downturn and recovery.
