"Please don’t buy The Evening Journal and World, because the newsboys has striked.” So read notices pinned to the hats and coats of newsboys throughout NYC on July 21, 1899, as the Newsboys’ Strike spread “from the Battery to the Bronx, and even across the Brooklyn Bridge” (as reported in the New York Times on July 22, 1899). These child laborers were protesting Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst’s refusal to return paper costs to peacetime prices after the conclusion of the 1898 Spanish-American War. The first actions of the strike took place on July 18, 1899, when newsies in Long Island City flipped over a distribution wagon for the New York Journal (Hearst’s paper). The following day, July 19th, Manhattan newsies gathered in City Hall Park, organized a union, and announced a strike. Over the course of the two-week strike, NYC’s newsboys interrupted traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge and reduced Pulitzer’s New York World circulation by almost 35%. To learn more about the Newsboys’ Strike of 1899 and other significant labor events in NYC history, join us this Saturday, July 21st @ 1:00 PM for our “Labor History Tour.” IMAGE: Lewis Hine, "Group of newsboys starting out at Brooklyn Bridge early Sunday morning,” ca. 1906.
