Postal Workers March Against Job Cuts
The Rev. Jesse Jackson marched Aug. 24 with thousands of postal workers during the American Postal Workers Union convention in Detroit. APWU and other postal workers and their supporters marched to say “no way” to the proposed five-day mail service the U.S. Postal Service management wants to implement. Getting rid of six-day service would cut tens of thousands of jobs, the majority of which are held by workers of color and women.
