The staffers of Times Community Newspapers are some of the hardest working and lowest paid journalists at the Los Angeles Times — earning less than $40,000 a year. But they face the steep cost of parking in downtown Los Angeles.
The Times refuses to fully cover this expense, so the L.A. Times Guild is holding a bake sale fundraiser — cookies! lemon bars! pie! — to help about a dozen staff members cover parking costs of about $85 month.
For those of you who can't make it to the Los Angeles Times newsroom, we have set up this GoFundMe to help out our hardworking colleagues. Every little bit helps!
