Help a Labor Reporter Enjoy 3 Day Federal (Unpaid) Holiday

Downtown Pittsburgh on the Fourth of July

Our Goal

$50 / $300

Recurring Donation

One Time Donation


Its 4th of July weekend, a federal holiday, which means that Monday is a federal holiday as well. The last few weeks at Payday have been intense and it would be great to take the weekend off. Unfortunately, federal holidays aren’t paid for the self-employed.

So, we need you to donate so that I can free myself from crowdfunding this weekend. Donate so we can afford an awesome 3-day weekend.

Sign up as one of our 600 recurring donors to provide us with a sustainable base of funding.

Love & Solidarity,
