Workers are being hard hit by soaring prices for food, gas, rents, medical expenses and more. The Militant newspaper — which fighting workers and trade unionists depend on for clarity on politics and as a guide to action — is also being hit with rising printing costs and postage expenses for getting the paper to its subscribers and distributors. That’s why supporters of the paper in California launched a fund to contribute payouts from the state’s so-called Gas Tax Relief rebate to the paper.
The governor and the Democrat-controlled legislature claim the payouts relieve the “pain” Californians have felt at the gas pump. But $350 for an individual or $700 for a couple is a drop in the bucket compared to what workers have paid for gas! There is no better way to use this payment than sending it to the Militant.
As of Nov. 8, $2,820 has been received by the paper.
