TAHOE/TRUCKEE – Toward the end of 2011, former Sierra Sun reporter Jason Shueh took on his final assignment – an in-depth look at the large day worker population in Truckee and North Lake Tahoe.

Weeks of shadowing and interviews in both English and Spanish with the workers themselves, coupled with discussions with the public figures who work with the population and with those who are responsible for enforcement, revealed an emotional anecdote that goes beyond your typical newspaper report.

It’s brash and, at times, vulgar. But it’s real. And it’s a narrative worth telling.

Our communities include a significant day worker labor force, people who are responsible for many of the luxuries afforded to so many locals who call Lake Tahoe and Truckee home.

Look for their story in a two-part, print-first special report this week in the Sierra Sun, beginning Wednesday, April 11.
