CARRIERS: Give ‘em a boost

Print Article

Why don’t we tip our paper delivery people? If you look at the ads for carriers, you can see how much money they make. Figure it out by the hour. What?!

These people get up very early and deliver the paper no matter what the weather condition is. They pay for their own vehicle, gas and maintenance costs. Guess who puts the cover on your paper?

Call The Press and give them your address. They will let the carrier know they have a card or envelope on your doorstep. They will pick it up. Don’t blame The Press. Maybe we could help. I had two paper routes in the ’60s.
