More Perfect Union Action is an advocacy journalism organization with a mission to build power for the working class. We cover politics, policy, labor, business, and economics news through a class lens, and we pair our video-first reporting with activism to help working people win policy fights.

We’re looking for talented content creators with a passion for news, social media, and progressive causes to join our nationwide network of video producers and reporters. We need you to tell the stories of the working class and their conditions, working Americans fighting for policy change and holding corporations accountable.
