Our little worker-funded publication and crowdsourced strike map is holding the mainstream media accountable.
“A labor site called “Payday Report” has tracked more than 150 strikes since the beginning of March, but the media’s gaze has been captured by the spectacle of placard-wielding citizens risking your health and yours to demand freedom from lockdown,” said “On The Media” host Bob Garfield on-air yesterday.
