Valdez-based seafood processors picket Exxon's Headquarters, protesting shortage of work

Title

Valdez-based seafood processors picket Exxon's Headquarters, protesting shortage of work

Description

Images of oil-slicked wildlife elicited strong emotions during the Exxon Valdez disaster. In comparison, the people who bore the catastrophe's widespread economic costs received sparse coverage. Here, a man protests the lack of work brought about by Exxon's oil spill - since the disaster claimed literally billions of salmon and herring eggs, the business of seafood packing stalled.
