More than 400 union workers at Washington Post demand raise

More than 400 unionized employees of the Washington Post have signed a public letter asking its multibillionaire owner for a raise.

Jeff Bezos, who is at the top of Forbes magazine’s latest list of richest Americans at $112 billion. is accused in the letter of not offering “fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,’’ Britain’s Daily Mail reported.

The Washington Post Guild said contract negotiations have been going on for more than a year.

It added “the Post has doubled the number of digital subscriptions and increased its online traffic by more than half,’’ along with meeting or exceeding its advertising goals.
