Years ago there were young boys who hawked newspapers on street corners. “Read all about it!” they’d shout, holding up the front page for all to see. They also dodged trolleys and horse-drawn wagons to get the job done.
The boys weren’t always treated well, particularly in New York City in 1899. They went on strike that year, fighting to change how they were compensated by Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst’s newspapers.
