The Los Angeles Times is a renowned news organization that has been representing journalists, media workers and other activists for many years. A recent study conducted by the NewsGuild-CWA, however, has revealed that there are still blatant inequalities in the salaries of unionized journalists, regardless of their age or position. On average, women of color in the Los Angeles Times bargaining unit earn less than 70 cents for every dollar a white man earns. The data used for this report was collected from approximately 320 full-time journalists, including reporters, photographers, writers, designers and other newsroom employees. The NewsGuild-CWA has also uncovered similar discrepancies in other newsrooms across the country, such as those of the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The average salary for Los Angeles Times jobs may vary depending on location, department, and job description.
It is important to note that the data presented on this page does not represent the opinion of the Los Angeles Times and its employees or that of Zippia. The salary paid may be different for the same position at the Los Angeles Times depending on experience, skills and competencies, and education. In conclusion, it is evident that there is still a long way to go in terms of achieving pay equality in the media industry. The NewsGuild-CWA is committed to fighting for fair wages and working conditions for all journalists and media workers.
