  • Thousands Protest Destruction of U.S. Postal Service
    Posted On: Nov 19, 2020
    Nov. 19, 2020 | COLLECTIVE ACTION | Augmented by progressives, notably from the group Our Revolution, thousands of Postal Workers, other unionists, and their supporters turned out from coast to coast on Nov. 17 to campaign against Trump Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s resumed destruction of the U.S. Postal Service. And, speakers added, to lobby lawmakers, particularly GOP senators, to pass the Heroes Act. It includes $25 billion to keep the USPS going and offset the huge crash in profitable first-class mail caused by the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent economic depression.
