Protests Break Out At Hollywood Post Office
Posted by Sami Mello on Mar 25, 2013 - 7:12:31 PM

HOLLYWOODProtestors rallied around the Hollywood post office, Sunday, to speak against proposed cuts to the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) that would end mail delivery on Saturdays.

Last month, Postmaster General Patrick A. Donohue proposed cuts, in a money-saving effort by the USPS, to end Saturday mail service and close certain post office facilities across the U.S.

Employees, families from nearby neighborhoods and other supporters lined Wilcox Avenue to voice their opinions about the planned cutbacks. According to reports, they were heard chanting, “Five Days? No Way!” and wore shirts that read, “Don’t dismantle the postal service.”

Leader of the Hollywood rally, Johnny Harris, said there is a potential for people to lose their jobs if the USPS goes through the proposed cutbacks. He said as many as 60,000 people could find themselves unemployed.

The intent of the protest was to alert the members of Congress to make better decisions when it comes to serving the American public.

The six-day mailing week will continue until September and Congress is still deciding if any changes will occur within the USPS.
