Looks like they're asking for $300,000 for their 65 workers. That's an average of $4600/person. Does that seem pretty low to anyone else?


Yes. Especially when they aren't asking for the same pay as other New York Times editorial employees -- not even close to it. The pay delta between median editorial guild member of the Times and editorial member of Wirecutter union is over $40,000. So they are asking for a little more than 10% of the delta between two of their unionized editorial writing groups, in terms of median pay.

That's the amount of the wage increase, not their total wages.

Right there with ya.

It would be more digestible to know what % the increase is (especially with respect to inflation).
