New Yorkers came out on Tuesday to support emergency funding for the United States Postal Service. Carrying signs and flyers, postal advocates and union members were in front of 16 post offices in the Bronx and Manhattan in support of the presentation of 2 million signed petitions to the Senate calling for immediate funding for the Postal Service. Americans have rated the Postal Service as the highest rated government agency with a 91% approval rating in the last Pew Survey, and in Harris Poll asking Americans to rate the most essential companies during the pandemic, the USPS was rated number 1.
