One of our country’s great responsibilities is to ensure the safe, efficient delivery of our mail at a reasonable price. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is a trusted American institution, delivering mail, medicine and packages to millions of Americans at a price families can afford.
Yet under the guise of a “budgetary crisis,” Congress is going after the U.S. Postal Service, proposing massive cuts. Cuts proposed include laying off 120,000 workers, closing thousands of post offices, eliminating Saturday mail service and closing mail processing facilities.
These cuts won’t just hurt Postal Workers – they will hurt every American, every community and every business.
Postal workers are fighting back and mobilizing for a massive day of action at post offices around the country on Tuesday, September 27. Join them! Click here for a list of rally locations and times in Wisconsin.
Republicans in Congress are hoping if they downgrade the postal service, they can privatize some of the services out to their corporate friends and allies. This will result in poorer service and increased prices as well as destroy a great American institution.
If we don’t stop Congress from cutting Postal Service programs, it will embolden extreme lawmakers who are already committed to privatizing public services – political maneuvers that will cause the loss of good, middle class jobs.
