224 dues-paying readers. $1,456/month. Join them.

We are a community supported labor reporting project. We depend on our readers to be able to tell the stories of workers in the South. Become a monthly supporting reader today and help us spend more time

Help us reach our goal of picking up 10 new members this so month. Our progress so far:

3 / 10

Recurring Payments

Join today by paying dues monthly or yearly (our preference is yearly – we’ll keep more of the money that way):

All dues-paying readers will be invited to our monthly tele-meetings.

$3/month or $36/year
If you support us at this level, you will receive not just a warm fuzzy feeling for knowing you are helping to keep our doors open, but also a Payday Report button.

$5/month or $60/year
Paying this much in dues will get you the button and a koozie.

$15/month or $180/year
This will get you the pin, the koozie, and, once we reach a critical mass of dues payers, a tote bag!

$35/month or $420/year
Paying dues at this level will get you the pin, the koozie, the tote bag, and (again once we reach a critical mass) a trucker hat!

$100/month or $1200/year
Finally, if you are able to pay dues at $100/month or $1200/year, you’ll get all of the above plus Payday Report co-founder Mike Elk will personally give you a tour of Chattanooga’s battlefield, let you spend a weekend in his guest room, and take you to Lamar’s for some of the best fried chicken in the South. (Or, if you are vegetarian or vegan, Kris will make sure Mike takes you to Sluggo’s.)
