Tonite, autoworkers across the country are preparing to go on strike tonight at midnight. The strike would be one of the largest autoworkers strike in a generation and could inspire more strikes across the country.
Payday wants to be there to travel around the country to film this historic strike, but we need your support to do it.
In 2019, when UAW went on strike at General Motors, Payday filed more than 28 dispatches and 30 videos from 6 states.
Our coverage was recognized by the New York Times and the Columbia Journalism Review. Payday Report intends once again to lead UAW strike coverage. We can make a big impact by covering strikes by autoworkers.
Our work as the first outlet to systematically track the strike wave during the pandemic has been widely recognized by everyone from Washington Post to NPR’s “All Things Considered” to filmmaker Boots Riley. In 2021, our work helping produce CNN’s United Shades of America was nominated for an Emmy.
Love & Solidarity,
