(Las Vegas, NV) — Postal workers are planning rallies in Nevada this afternoon. They hope to send a message that cutting jobs is not the answer to solving the nation’s budget crisis. Congress is considering a plan to close thousands of post offices, leaving over 100,000 workers without jobs. The rallies will be held at Las Vegas’ main post office on Sunset Road, and in Reno, starting at 4 p.m.
