Take Our Southern Labor Media Survey

Payday Report is conducting a survey in order to help us provide better coverage of the Southern labor movement. If you live in the South (as broadly defined by the U.S. Census) and are involved in the labor movement, please go here to take this brief survey on your relationship with the media as well as issues that organized labor is currently facing. It should only take about five minutes to complete and we’d greatly appreciate it!

  1. Is the personal info we enter on the Southern Labor Survey shared or published?

  2. I would like to speak with you or a ranking member of your staff. At 67, I was involved in politics during the election fo J.F.K. My father was responsible for the organization of Unions for the United Steelworkers until his death in 1966 and a Union Hall was named in his honor. I have worked in copywriting, broadcasting, Clinical Psychology and as a Professional Hypnotist. I left a voice message for you and very much want to see Paul Ryan out of Congress. We need and deserve National, a Single payer, healthcare. There is No excuse for the “Greatest Country” in the world being the only one where insurance companies and pharmaceutical owning our politicians. We need to get rid of the Electorial College. The British brought in health care during the Great Depression. I would be happy to help you learn how to speak to the public. To work on copywriting, Voice-Over work. I do Very Much want you to win this. I live on a very limited income but in the areas mentioned, I would be happy to help. It would be of help to speak to you in person or on the phone. I can be reached a 304-694-9814. I will fill you in on my history and answer any questions that you may have. I cannot afford to donate money, but what I am offering could be well worth more than any monetary donation. And I might also mention that I am a registered republican but consider myself a Democratic Socialist since the republicans ran away from me. I have been finished with them since they nominated W.

  3. Hello Mr. Elk,
    After watching your interview from Jimmy Dore, I am prompted to write to you regarding the framing and optics of your skype video phone images. Please consider turning the telephone 90 degrees, the wide way; so, when shown the big black sides bars will not appear, just your pretty MUG will show with a little background context. You might also find your MUG is favorably presented with the camera at mouth level or higher to your forehead, allowing your eyelids to be more open and less shadow of your eyes. Please give this a try and let your staff of f1,000’s lend their opinion.

    Keep up the labor news young man.
    John Carroll
