Child labor is too expensive, at least for the Grand Rapids Press. As part of “cost-cutting measures,” The Press will no longer be delivered by paperboys and papergirls under the age of 18.
According to WOODTV.com, “In a change to the way they deliver their papers to their carriers, The Press announced they will drop off their papers to depots around the city instead of at neighborhood corners. The carrier will have to go to that depot to get their bundle and then deliver them.”
This means that only people 18 and over can go and deliver the paper, presumably because of transportation and insurance concerns.
