Striking Reporters Keep The News Going On The Web
from the more-labor-stuff dept
After never talking about labor issues, here’s a second labor-related post in less than a week. Striking reporters from two of Seattle’s major newspapers have continued to publish news on their own site on the web. In the past, striking reporters have been known to put out their own papers, but the web makes it even easier. After the discussion last week about unions, I’m wondering if some people think that all these reporters should simply be fired for trying to get better wages and benefits. Update: Apparently, there’s even more to this story. The original newspapers are still publishing stories, and they’re also using the web to get more information out. The newspapers are still planning on printing paper editions (though they’ll be smaller than usual), but will point readers to their websites for more complete news.
