ALBANY, NY (03/22/2013)(readMedia)-- The Postal Service's plan to downsize and end six-day service is an attack on the future of this great institution, on the customers who need it and on the employees who support it. Many Americans – especially small business owners and senior citizens – would suffer if the strength and reach of the Postal Service is compromised. In addition, cutting Saturday Mail would delay important household and business transactions including bills, invoices, and personal communications, and may force customers to shift to high cost competing services.
Concerned citizens, Civic groups, Elected officials, and Labor unions.
