Workers put Trump on notice: 'The U.S. mail is not for sale!'

Craig Barrett, who said he has delivered mail for “16 winters” in St. Paul, rallies with fellow Postal Service employees on a national day of action.

Postal Service employees are bringing their unions together to push back against President Trump’s plans to privatize the federal agency.

And their solidarity is paying off.

Letter carriers, postal workers, mail handlers and other USPS employees in Minneapolis — and in communities across the country — rallied today with supporters, putting Trump and federal lawmakers on notice that the U.S. mail should not be for sale.

“As long as we can fight, we’re going to keep fighting to keep our Postal Service going strong,” said Harold Harvey, a member of St. Paul-based Branch 28 of the National Association of Letter Carriers, as he walked an informational picket line outside Minneapolis’ downtown post office.

1. He wants it all privatized , along with teachers, police , fire , and others

So they can break up their unions, rob their pension funds, and then reduce their benefits and reduce giving them wage increases. Its all for the corporations, not the workers that'll benefit, plus if they have control they can shake them down for money, like trump is now trying to do in other countries and with businesses. Do as I say or else . Everything he's done has benefited corporations and the wealthy like the tax scam ripoff they passed , and planning another bigger one if they can after the Mid Terms, then on to destroy Social Security, but they'll say its a reorganization. if you believe that I've got a bridge to sell you.
