With a change in economic situation, the price of newspapers is increased by 10 cents on each stack of 100 papers as a joint decision by William Randolph Hearst
It was now difficult for the boys to buy the same amount of newspapers and their margin for each was reduced on average. It was now hard for them to make both ends meet. Jack Kelly decided to fight for his right and hit upon a plan. He teamed up with his newspaper selling partner David Jacob and organized a strike. Since it was aimed to be against the owners of the city’s leading newspapers, it got coverage on a bigger scale.
