The workers who are responsible for designing, printing, distributing, advertising sales, accounts receivable, and content creation for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have been on strike for over a year. They have not had a pay raise in over 15 years and went on strike over the illegal, unilateral cuts to their healthcare made by the Block family -- the Toledo-based, millionaire owners of the paper -- as well as multiple bad-faith bargaining unfair labor practice charges.
Here's how you can support the striking workers and their families during the holiday season.
