The establishment of workers' journalism in Estonia can be traced back to the late 19th century and the early 20th century when the workers' and trade union movements began to gain momentum. The first workers' journals included "Sotsial-Demokraat" (1896-1917) and "Töörahva Sõnumid" (1905-1906), which aimed to represent the interests and rights of workers and propagate socialist ideology. These publications focused on issues affecting workers, such as working conditions and societal inequality.

During the period of the Republic of Estonia, the development of workers' journalism continued, although it was influenced by political changes and censorship. Magazines like "Punane Täht" (1917-1940) and "Tööline" (1928-1940) played important roles in supporting the workers' movement and raising awareness about working conditions and social rights.
