Just a few years ago on the weekends, people started showing up on the median strip at busy intersections in San Diego selling the weekend edition of the Union-Tribune newspaper. Walking up and down a strip of cement just a few inches wide in the hot sun while cars go speeding past you does not seem like a very safe way to make a living to me. All it takes is one slip or miss-step and that person could easily be run over!
Why the Union-Tribune condones this activity is beyond me. I’m sure it does not take much for them to convince these seeming homeless/ low-income people to put their lives on the line for their newspaper.
I urge you to join me in boycotting any newspaper that does this until they stop this practice!
