Cosponsor H. Res. 993 and Oppose the Privatization of the U.S. Postal Service!

            For over 240 years, the United States Postal Service and our dedicated postal workforce have performed the essential government function of “providing postal services to bind the Nation together through the personal, educational, literary,
and business correspondence of the people.” In furtherance of this mission, the Postal Service and its more than 500,000 clerks, letter carriers, mail handlers, and other employees deliver the mail to over 157 million residential and business customers
six days a week nationwide.  Given the effectiveness of the Postal Service in fulfilling its critical public service mission, it is not surprising that the American people have consistently ranked the Postal Service as our most trusted government agency.

sexual assault, stalking, and revenge pornography, is the severe economic impact this abuse can have on victims. It can cost victims their jobs, their homes, their health, and their insurance – and, in cases of domestic violence, reinforce their dependency
on their abusers as a result. Abusers often use economic necessities like rent, health care, and child care to exert control over their victims. And victims of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, stalking, and revenge pornography often find that abuse
and threats follow them from home into the workplace – each year, they lose nearly eight million days of paid work—the equivalent of more than 32,000 full-time jobs.
