Support the Postal Workers, theyre on the job to save our postal service
with
Jonathan Smith, president of the NY Metro Postal Workers Union

The battle over the future of the Postal Service, which was a focus of American political life last year, is still on. Corrupt and incompetent Postmaster General Louis DeJoy announced in March (with the backing of the present Postal Board of Governors, headed by Chair Ron Bloom) a 10-year plan to remake the post office from a constitutionally mandated public service into a corporate entity. The DeJoy-Bloom plan openly promises slower delivery times for much of the mail, steadily increasing postal rates, and reduced access to post offices. (What a combo!). It sets out the next terrain of battle in our fight to save our public postal service. It is no exaggeration to say that undermining the Peoples Service will weaken electoral democracy in this country. The savage ongoing attack on mail ballots is intentionally crafted to make it harder for poor people to vote.
