• Sanders aims to save postal service jobs
    March 26,2012

    The U.S. Senate today plans to take up a bill to reform the U.S. Postal Service.

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has led a group pressing for stronger language to save rural post offices and mail processing plants, maintain robust delivery standards and Saturday delivery, and save tens of thousands of jobs.

    “As the Senate begins work on this important legislation, I hope we can agree that, in the digital age of the 21st century, the Postal Service needs to change and become more entrepreneurial. I hope we can also agree that in the midst of a terrible recession it makes no sense to be downsizing the Postal Service by tens of thousands of workers, slow mail delivery service and devastate rural communities by closing their post offices. We can do better. We must do better. And I hope that will be the result of the Senate’s legislative action.”
