#FairGoFairfax

This morning, Fairfax staff (The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Australian Financial Review) were met with the news of another 120 jobs being slashed, mostly editorial and newsroom positions, but freelance contributor budgets are also being targeted.

In response, staff are striking until Monday.

I freelance for Fairfax, as do a lot of my friends and colleagues, so in solidarity there won't be any new posts on SM this weekend.
