The Reporting the U.S. Workplace program was seed-funded by a generous donation to the Sidney Hillman Foundation from Jesse C. Crawford, a now-retired entrepreneur and business owner who was the president and CEO of Atlanta-based, Crawford Media Services, Inc. Crawford worked in print journalism in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and for nearly 40 years his businesses have provided services to radio and television channels, networks, and cable channels. Early in his life, Crawford belonged to both craft and industrial unions, and participated in labor struggles. He believes that a strong and vibrant labor union movement and a free, engaged and dynamic press are both vital to an informed citizenry, the commonweal and a democratic political economy. Crawford has had no role in the editorial content of the program.
Now, thanks to the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we are able to continue to run this all-expenses-paid program.
