This year, we have received wide acclaim this year with The New York Times citing our work six times. The New York Times’ Ben Smith even labeled me, Melk, an “abrasive gadfly” for my work exposing a sexual misconduct cover-up in my NewsGuild. 

Emmy Award winner W. Kamau Bell partnered with Payday Report to film a CNN documentary on white supremacy and environmental racism in Pittsburgh. 

Everyone from NPR’s All Things Considered to The Economist to film director Boots Riley has cited our work tracking the largest strike wave in the U.S. since 1946. 

Major local publications like  The Houston Chronicle, The Mississippi Clarion-Ledger, The Louisville Courier-Journal, and The Memphis Commercial-Appeal, among others, have cited us. 

We raised $96,000 in 2020 with 85% of it coming direct from readers. We are able to do the type of reporting that no other publication does because we are funded primarily by workers.
