Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

The New Yorker Union Goes on One-Day Strike to Protest “Egregious” Wage Proposal

HeadlineJan 22, 2021

Union members at The New Yorker magazine went on a 24-hour strike Thursday after denouncing “management’s egregious wage proposal” in their ongoing contract talks. According to the union, the wage proposal includes the right to decrease union members’ salaries by up to 20% at any time. In a statement, unionized employees wrote, “We are committed to The New Yorker, which is why many of us have worked here years — even decades — despite low and stagnant wages. However much we may love our jobs, that love is not enough to live on.”
