Podcast: Reporting the Amazon story
Reporter Dale Shoemaker discusses his reporting on the huge subsidy package Amazon is receiving to build a warehouse in Niagara County.
On Tuesday, Investigative Post reported on the huge subsidy package Amazon is receiving to build a warehouse in Niagara County. Amazon will receive $124 million in tax breaks from the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency, plus state tax credits of at least $2 million. In exchange, Amazon will employ 1,000 people, most earning $15 an hour.
Reporter Dale Shoemaker sat down with Garrett Looker, host of our podcast series, to discuss the reporting. You can watch the interview via our YouTube channel or listen to it as a podcast.
Our intent is to publish a podcast a week. Coming up are interviews with Congressman Brian Higgins and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Toles.Subscribe to Podcast in iTunes
