The Best of in 2016

2016 was another big year for We posted 320 stories, videos, interviews, news updates and job posting this year. 145 of those were original stories, news reports or interviews. We had over 60 different authors writing for us. This year we launched two amazing projects: our podcast which has in-depth interviews with labour activists across the country and our new organizer’s handbook, 15 and Fairness Now!. The latter has now sold roughly 500 copies so far. Our readership has also continued to grow, almost doubling over the last year. Thanks to all those whose financial support and hard work make possible. Thanks especially to Daniel Tseghay, Denise Leduc and Robert Devet who have done incredible work for us this year. Without our writers, donors, and readers we could not have achieved all that we did in 2016. 2017 we will be looking to expand on this by hiring more writers, covering more stories and hopefully publishing more printed materials. Please consider becoming a monthly donor to help us expand our coverage. To celebrate our achievements the editors have chosen their top three stories of the year.
