Payday is having a huge impact on national coverage of the GM strike.
Today, the New York Times’ David Leonhardt in an op-ed entitled “Why I Am Rooting for the GM Strikers” cited our work (co-published with the American Prospect) on the GM strike and how union corruption sunk the union drive in Chattanooga, which builds on the work Payday did down south earlier this summer.
Not only is the New York Times citing us, but our work at Payday is going viral. One photo, we took of GM workers taking their position on picket line Sunday night in Rochester got over a MILLION views on twitter. The post was translated into over a dozen languages, garnering nearly 4,000 retweets and over 12,000 likes.
We will have another story out later today, but first check out this funny video we took of a pro-union cop talking with striking workers blocking a union buster from leaving the plant.
Once again, pass the hat and donate today.
Love and Solidarity,
