Who took down Stockton? by TYTInvestigates
Stockton, California recently became the largest city to file for bankruptcy in American history. And now we know why. (Spoiler alert: big banks, government corruption, greed.) They interviewed a lot of Stockton employees who got formally screwed over (healthcare cut, retirement accounts wiped out) when the city went bankrupt. It’s really heartbreaking and poignant to see the impact of austerity on human lives up close.
I’ve driven through Stockton quite a bit. Surprising..
