EXTRA, EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT THE NEWSIES STRUGGLE FOR FAIR DEAL AT THE TIMES UNION
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.
