I wrote a few months ago about the people who work hard delivering the morning paper.
A bunch of them may have just lost their jobs, with the announcement the Pioneer Press carriers will now start delivering the Star Tribune.
If you’re a carrier keeping his/her job,it’ll be a massive change. Your one or two hour route delivery probably just went to three or four. Your Sunday delivery will probably require an extra vehicle and another two hours to put together.
Who knows? If the East Metro combination works out, it wouldn’t be hard, perhaps, to start printing the paper using Pioneer Press facilities. And what’s next after the operations are combined? We’ll see.
