Postal workers rally outside Hartzler's office
Wednesday, September 28, 2011
As part of a nationwide effort to tell Congress to save the U.S. Postal Service, workers rallied outside congressional offices all over the country.
Outside U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler’s Jefferson City office on Hyde Park Road, more than 25 workers and supporters gathered, chanting “We don’t want a bail out, we just want the mail out.”
Maranda Carpenter, a letter carrier for the past six years, said workers are trying to get information to Congress members on an issue they say is the true cause of the Postal Service’s financial troubles.
