Pride and a Paycheck has been publishing for 20 years. The first 15 years were funded through the San Francisco Foundation from monies set aside for support of tradeswomen projects by Madeline Mixer. She continued to support Pride by her editing and proof reading skills for as long as she could. May she rest in power. Pride began as a newsletter, mailed to subscribers such as tradeswomen, schools and training programs. Now as an E-Magazine funded through donations and advertisements. Always FREE, the way Madeline and I envisioned it to be. Within the pages of Pride and a Paycheck Magazine are the faces of women in the trades. Their words are work pieces. Their voices are fundamental tools serving the most useful purpose of telling the world what it’s like to be blue collar female workers. Their words are change agents working in the repair departments of human conditions. Pushing and nudging consciousness to higher levels of thought. Trashing the obsolete and dangerously backward ideas. Their bodies direct their words. Their actions shine a spot light on the future of women in the trades of any ethnicity and sexual preference. They are INSIDERS in their reportage. They tell it like it is….and they tell it like it should be. They recruit and support sisters from the INSIDE. Enjoy the magazine and support it with your donations. Please.
