Rallying Hopes To Deliver Message To Congress About Postal Delivery Day Cut
Earlier this week, Congress passed a new spending bill that would continue requiring a six-day mail delivery... and today in Montgomery, ralliers voiced their opinion on the Saturday cut-back.
These rallies are happening all across the nation in hope of showing people the importance of a six-day delivery.
"Don't let Donohoe disobey, deliver mail on Saturday!" chanted dozens of ralliers, delivering a message to Congress. It was one reminding them to preserve the postal office's six-day delivery.
Montgomery wasn't the only city in Alabama holding a six-day delivery rally. They also happened in Birmingham and Mobile.
Last year, the postal service lost nearly $16 billion. The cutback was believed to be an effort to recruit some of the money lost.
