Has anyone seen any paperboys (or girls) delivering daily newspapers these days?
As a kid growing up in Newport, VT, back in the 1960’s and 70’s, it was quite a big deal to have a “paper route” which was essentially a part-time newspaper delivery job. There were quite a few “paperboys” each competing for coveted routes delivering the local newspaper throughout the community. Is it an urban myth that kids are no longer legally able to work on paper routes?
