Our reader funding reporting has had a huge impact and been cited in publications such as  HuffPost, Politico, The Guardian, Esquire, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Columbia Journalism Review, Al-Jazeera, The New Republic, The Observer, and Pacific Standard.

In the past month:

  • Following an investigation by Payday Report, SEIU has fired one of their staffers over the sexual assault of another staff member within their organization. Payday Report uncovered that SEIU allowed a staffer who had been forced to leave one Boston-area SEIU local following an internal investigation to then be rehired at two other SEIU locals in California.
  • We broke the story of how Trump’s OSHA was not coordinating health and safety training with immigrants rights workers groups, putting hurricane clean-up workers at risk in Texas; our exposé in the Guardian came out the day before a hurricane clean-up worker was killed by a flesh-eating bacteria.
  • We were the only national outlet to cover how the Pittsburgh DSA took out two key incumbents and is poised to take out even more incumbents in this May’s Democratic Primary.
  • We were the only national outlet to cover the defeat of the Steelworkers union drive at Kumho Tire in Macon, Georgia, by a mere 28 votes. Payday also broke the story of how Kumho fired a union activist in retaliation.
  • We were the first national outlet to provide the inside story of how campus workers in Tennessee, despite lacking collective bargaining rights, were able to defeat Republican Gov. Bill Haslam’s plan to outsource thousands of campus jobs.
  • Down in Nashville, we continued to hold corporate Democrat Nashville Mayor Megan Barry accountable for her silence on the death of Latino construction workers and her failure to stand up for affordable housing.

And here is a look back at what we did in 2017 so far:
