More Local Newspapers Go to Mail Delivery as Drivers Go to Better-Paying Jobs

From a Wall Street Journal story by Alexandra Bruell headlined “Local Newspapers Try Mail Delivery as Drivers Choose Better-Paying Gigs”:

The publisher of the Odessa American found it so difficult to find workers to deliver the West Texas newspaper in recent years that at one point he handled the job himself.

Then earlier this year, Patrick Canty, the paper’s publisher for two decades, cut the paper’s print circulation from seven days a week to two and started mailing the issues to subscribers using the U.S. Postal Service’s same-day delivery option instead of relying on delivery drivers.
