Newspaper vendors play an essential role in the dissemination of news and information and are responsible for the distribution and sale of newspapers to customers. They can be found on street corners, near public transportation hubs, or in other high-traffic areas, selling newspapers to people on their way to work, school, or other activities. They provided readers with physical copies of newspapers, enabling them to stay informed about current events, local news, and various topics of interest. Additionally, newspaper vendors served as a source of local knowledge and community interaction, often engaging in conversations with customers and building relationships within their communities. As readers increasingly shift to digital platforms for accessing news, the demand for physical newspapers declines. This transition to digital newspapers can impact the livelihoods of newspaper vendors, affecting their financial stability and job security. They may face challenges in accessing social security benefits or adapting to alternative income sources, further exacerbating their economic uncertainties.
