More than a bike and a cart is needed for this run
Carrier (Former Employee), Antioch, CAJanuary 1, 2013
Pros: free newspaper
Cons: wear and tear on mind, body, soul, and vehicle
Simply put, the new-age paper carriers aren't ones on bicycles. They are men and women who drive their personal vehicles from house to house before sunrise to run a route, 7 days a week. While seems like fun out the gate, you'll realize, that loading up your car with newspapers in the amounts of 200 to 800, can be very disheartening. The idea of being that person to bring their news to their doorsteps is kind of nice. The reality is, its tough work. Unless you pay someone else to run your route, you never get a day off & getting up to run errands after that is even more tough. Your car will have a love/hate relationship with you in no time.
