Postal workers rally to save jobs

Postal workers in Westchester County rallied tonight to try and save their jobs.

The U.S. Postal Service is losing billions of dollars nationwide and may lay off thousands of workers, close local post offices and even eliminate home delivery on Saturdays.

Dozens of postal workers rallied on Mamaroneck Avenue in front of the office of Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Harrison), who supports a bill aimed at saving jobs at the postal service that is still being debated in Congress.

Today the U.S. Senate decided that everyone needs more time before making a decision about the cuts.

Congress is expected to vote on the postal reform bill in October.
