People at Proctor’s Theater in Schenectady who attended Saturday’s North American premier of the touring production of Newies _ a musical based on a newsboys’ strike more than a century ago _ got a chance to hear about the real “newsies” at the Times Union.

Guild members handed out the leaflets that you can see on the previous post, which describe how hard-working families at the TU have had their wages frozen for seven years as the company refuses to negotiate a fair contract.

Hundreds of flyers were distributed and people seemed genuinely interested in learning about the situation, with some expressing surprise that wages had been frozen for so long.
