Jun 18 - BuzzFeed journalists go on strike
 

 
Citing mismanagement, pay disparities and job cuts, BuzzFeed News employees walked off the job on Monday afternoon in the hopes of getting the online-media company to voluntarily recognize their union.

Employees in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and San Francisco are taking part in the protests, according to the NewsGuild of New York. Plans for the walkout were first reported by Bloomberg News.

Video of the walkout showed BuzzFeed employees standing outside the company’s New York office chanting and carrying signs that said “Recognize the BuzzFeed Union!!” There was also a giant inflatable rat -- a common form of protest by striking trade unions.
...
“We have legitimate grievances about unfair pay disparities, mismanaged pivots and layoffs, weak benefits, skyrocketing health insurance costs, diversity, and more,” the BuzzFeed News Organizing Committee said in a statement.

Their website is a joke, kind of like a TMZ site. It's not real journalism.
They could terminate everyone who is on strike and find a whole new crew of writers who are desperate to get their foot in the door.

Buzzfeed hired all those privileged millennials and is paying the price. Good job.

Buzzfeed could be done by like 15 people. They better shut the fu*k up and use it to get ahead and bounce.

n*ggas tryna stay employed at Buzzfeed for 10 years and knowing that the internet changes every 6 months.

You get in, work your a*s off, connect yourself to other sources and get out.

I’m not staying long enough to protest.

Economic casual...

For most U.S. workers, real wages have barely budged in decades



BY DREW DESILVER

On the face of it, these should be heady times for American workers. U.S. unemployment is as low as it’s been in nearly two decades (3.9% as of July) and the nation’s private-sector employers have been adding jobs for 101 straight months – 19.5 million since the Great Recession-related cuts finally abated in early 2010, and 1.5 million just since the beginning of the year.

But despite the strong labor market, wage growth has lagged economists’ expectations. In fact, despite some ups and downs over the past several decades, today’s real average wage (that is, the wage after accounting for inflation) has about the same purchasing power it did 40 years ago. And what wage gains there have been have mostly flowed to the highest-paid tier of workers.

Buzzfeed sucks. My wife worked there for about 6 or 7 months. 3 months after she walked out on them she got a call from the payroll company saying Buzzfeed had underpaid her by $7,800 and they were cutting her a check immediately.

Hell yeah, I feel bad for the idiots who were tricked into believing unions aren't good.

calling out @Ymmot for also being a dumb a*s that does not comprehend

Did you even watch the video?


edit: and the source you cited is for an absolutely different topic, it has to do with purchasing power...so if anything you are making an argument that americans are making money, as they were 40 years ago, that allows them to go college and pay their loans, buy cars, buy homes, vacation, pay their bills, etc...

and im the one thats an "economic casual" you are too dumb to comprehend the material that you source.
