Vox is on strike today- they're trying to unionize! ✊

As a result, consuming media today from Vox, The Verge, or Polygon constitutes breaking a picket line.

Wouldn't using an adblocker constitute the same? Since they're not making money?

Online magazines also get their business from pageviews regardless of advertisements being blocked. There's a strange system, I don't know the exact details on.

Really? I'm pretty sure if you block all ads and trackers and don't use affiliates, they get nothing.

As far as I know from 2014, they do have business on page impressions / views, though not as valuable as advertisements and affiliate links. It's why a lot of people recommend to archive the articles and never directly visit.
