Article explores how media unions provide ‘safety net for workers’

Writer Josh Sternberg examines the rise of media unions in a recent story on the Substack site called The Media Nut. The article includes this comment to CNN from former Gawker staffer and current labor reporter at In These Times, Hamilton Nolan:

“I think a lot of people perceive media as this white-collar profession, but the reality of working in a lot of media jobs was really low salaries, bad benefits, very little job stability. One thing that the unions have done across the industry in many, many places is just to put in place a basic safety net for workers.”
