Newsies Livestream (5/23/17)


On this day July 21st, 1899 a band of New York newsboys refused to buy the newspapers of Joseph Pulitzer, The World and William Randolph Hearst, The Journal sparking a childhood labor movement that would inspire many more for decades to come.

here’s the story: 

In 1898 the price of the paper was raised from 65¢ per hundred to 85¢ per hundred, at the newsies expense, due to the influx of people papers purchased during the Spanish-American War. However after the war ended, the publishing giants Pulitzer and Hearst refused to put the price back to what it had been before the war. At this high rate the newsies could no longer make enough money to pay for their own lodging and food. 

So a young Brooklyner, Louis Ballatt “Kid Blink” got together with a group of fellow newsies and they decided to boycott the publishers. The kids refused by to buy and sell their papers. Then after several rallies of nearly 5,000 newsies, many of which were broken up by men hired by Pulitzer and Hearst, the young group of New York boys and girls decided that they would march across the road of the Brooklyn bridge, bringing both the traffic and the entire city to a standstill. 

With this movement, papers could no longer be distributed across New England, lowering Pulitzer and Hearst’s circulation by nearly 70%. After several days of barricading the Brooklyn bridge, the newspaper giants agreed to speak with Kid Blink and his army of newsies. They came the the agreement that the newspapers would remain at the cost of 85¢ per hundred, but that the publishers would buy back the newsies unsold papers. And on August 2nd, 1899 the union was disbanded.
