Help Us Reach Our Goal
With riots expected in the upcoming days, some in the labor movement are organizing in non-traditional ways to push back against the long term effects of Trumpism. Donate today to help us do so.
We are entering an unprecedented period in American history, where the labor movement is likely to respond in non-traditional ways.
After the Capitol riot last week, many of the rioters stayed at hotels in the DC area. Now, in an effort to stop this from repeating, UNITE HERE Local 25 is calling on DC hotels to close for everyone except security personnel.
“We are calling on hotels in the DC region to close ahead of inauguration, unless they are hosting security personnel. Any hotel that stays open must permit workers to stay home and/or leave the moment they feel unsafe,” said UNITE HERE Local 25 in a statement.
Flight attendants unions have also successfully called for getting Trump rioters put on the “No Fly List”.
Even beyond preventing riots, unions will have a great deal of work to do in organizing to roll back the long-term effects of Trumpism. Payday hopes to be able to cover these efforts.
Our work has been cited widely from outlets like NPR’s All Things Considered to The Economist to film director Boots Riley who praised our work tracking the largest strike wave in the U.S. since 1946.
Now, we hope to be at the forefront of reporting labor’s mobilization to push Trump out of office. But to tell these stories of how workers are rallying against fascism, we need your help.
Thank you for your continued support.
Love and Solidarity,
