Note from the Editor:

Folks, we are very close to reaching our goals for the annual BlueCollarWriter Labor Media fundraiser and making BCW be 100% crowdsourced, but we still need just a little more of a push to reach the finish line. Your donations go to operating costs, equipment upgrades, work-related travel and even donations given to strike funds on behalf of you the supporters of BCW Media. Sadly, the enemies of the Working Class have endless supplies of cash to wage their war on us, so we have to do what we can to gather the resources we need to Hold The Line and fight back. If you enjoy what we do at BCW Media then urge you to please donate. Also, a special thank to all who have already donated, joined our Patreon and bought merch. Your Support and Solidarity is greatly appreciated and means the world to me. Solidarity and let's keep Kicking Ass for the Working Class,
