On Tuesday, June 6th, The Washington-Baltimore News Guild is proud to support and announce an Organizing Event and Happy Hour Fundraiser for our member & friend in the struggle for Labor Rights, Payday Senior Labor Reporter, Mike Elk who will be a host a discussion of our struggle to #OrganizeTheSouth.
Since buying the car in March, we have traveled over 7,000 miles covering the movement to #OrganizeTheSouth.
#BossTalk aims to be a lot like the show Car Talk. However, instead of teaching you to how to fix your car, we teach you how to fix your boss. Each week, #BossTalk aims to explore ways in which workers can use labor law to fight back against the boss.
Payday is hitting the road to get into the trenches of the fight to Organize the South. Donate to help us cover gas, food, and lodging on the road.
In our industry, we are encouraged not to take long lunches nor show up to rallies, but on May 3rd, let’s do both. Let’s give the cameras a sight for the ages: hundreds of journalists marching on the White House arm in arm for the cause of press freedom.
Let’s call on journalists from around the world to take to the streets to show Trump that we will not be divided. Let’s call on our readers and our allies in organized labor to march with us and show us that the public has media worker’s backs in covering Trump accurately.
After only six months of organizing, we already have 114 monthly dues-paying readers contributing an average of $8.15 per month for a total $926 per month. At our current rate of growth, our one-and-a-half person operation will be fully sustainable within 12 months without any grant money. Having $5,000 will allow us to get through to the summer and apply for major grants.

Payday Report is conducting a survey in order to help us provide better coverage of the Southern labor movement.
At the beginning of this month, we gave ourselves a goal of bringing in 10 additional dues-paying readers. With less than a day to go, we’ve reached 13! In all, our supporters are contributing $576/month to our efforts to report on the labor movement in the South.
