Guardian price rise

It is more than10 years since the price of The Guardian was increased. During that period the costs of production and postage have continued to rise. While costs are kept to an absolute minimum, relying heavily on the generosity and commitment of volunteers and employees whose wages are not high, it has reached a point where we must reluctantly increase the price of the paper.

The Guardian does not accept paid advertising from corporations. We advertise many events of working class, solidarity and other progressive causes for free as a means of supporting those movements. The Press Fund is one means by which we attempt to raise additional funds towards our costs.

The price will rise to $2 as from July 4, the first issue in the next financial year.

We recognise that by the very nature of our paper that many of our readers are struggling to make ends meet. So subscription to The Guardian will be offered at three rates: Solidarity, Regular and Concession. The Concession will be at the current rate.

Solidarity $150
Regular $100
Concession $80 (no increase)

Half year:
Solidarity $80
Regular $55
Concession $40

Solidarity $45
Regular $30
Concession $20

If you don’t already have a subscription, there is still time to take one out before the price rise. If you have one, then why not extend it now?
