Vox is on strike today- they're trying to unionize! ✊
As a result, consuming media today from Vox, The Verge, or Polygon constitutes breaking a picket line.
@mawr Ooh, thanks for letting me know about this. I was about to read a Polygon article when I finished with my work here...
@mawr Vox actually already has a union! They're the ones who organized the walkout. The walkout itself is because Vox execs refuse to listen to the unions demands, including raising entry-level wages
@columbidae Better yet!! :D
@mawr Don't be a scab kids!
@mawr Hello! Small distinction: they're not on strike, yesterday was a one-day walkout. That's not to diminish their action—it's brave and hugely important!
