Help Us Reach Our Goal
Part of the reason why the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” resonates with us all so much is that the movie ultimately ends with a successful community-wide crowdfunding effort to help Jimmy Stewart beat old Mr. Potter.
So, in the spirit of “It’s a Wonderful Life”, Payday is launching a holiday-themed
As many of you know despite the fact that freelance labor reporters cover some of the worst economic injustices of society, we have no paid vacation days off for ourselves.
While most people greet the holidays with the cheer of getting to take some time off, however for freelancers like myself, the holidays are meet with dread. There is no paid vacation time for freelancers. Worse, many editors often use extra paid vacation time around the holidays meaning that there are rarely assignment given in the period right before and right after holidays.
For freelancers, the holidays for us are a period of dread. So this year, I am trying to raise $1000 so I can take a few days off the week and not worry about money, just enjoy the holidays
After an exhausting year of reporting, it would be great to take a week off like everyone else and enjoy my family and friends.
So please if you can, donate today.
