NY Times Employees Go on Strike

Hannah King, Staff Writer

At the New York Times, staff with jobs such as reporters, security guards, and comment moderators have gone on strike. They are upset with their pay and claim that it does not match what the company can afford to pay them. They responded with a proposal for a 3% pay raise, but the staff is not settling for that. Staff members like Cliff Levy, a deputy managing editor, stated that with the recent inflation, their current pay is not worth the job.

This strike is groundbreaking and reminds us that even people with glorified jobs, like working for the New York Times, have real problems. It also reminds us to not settle for improvements that are not enough to make a difference.
