Village Voice employees say they'll go on strike Friday if they can't reach an agreement with management over pay and benefits.
They have started an alternate website, http://therealvoice.org/
This is nothing new; This goes on every three years or so, except the difference that at a strike benefit party Wednesday night, Yetta Kurland and Lt. Dan Choi appeared and invited themselves as representatives of the LGBTTQ community.
While there efforts are admirable, I would remind both Choi and especially Yetta, who is supposed to be a lawyer, there remain thousands of LGBTTQ here in New York who are either unemployed and who have been rendered unemployable by local, state, and the federal government – me being one – and to this day I’ve never hand anyone stand up for me or them.
Especially gay lawyers.
