GREEN BAY, WI --Concerned citizens and mail carriers rallying in northeast Wisconsin and across the country Sunday, to save Saturday mail service.
About fifty people gathered outside a Green bBy post office demanding Congress find a better plan to strengthen the postal service for the future. The postal service announced plans to cut it's Saturday delivery in early February, saying moving to a five day mail delivery would save them about 2 billion dollars.
"What would normally take a day in the past might take two or three, and now if you do away with one more day of mail delivery, anything you send out will be delayed even longer," said Patrick Vanegeren with the Wisconsin State Association of Letter Carriers.
The transition to a new delivery schedule is slated to take place during the week of August 5th. This rally was one of dozens around the country.
