EL PASO - Postal service workers took to the streets today, partly in an effort to tell the public that they're hard workers who want to keep their jobs.

About 40 post office employees held up signs in San Jacinto Plaza, in front of U.S. Rep. Silvestre Reyes' office. They said that Rep. Reyes supports postal workers and is trying to push congress to save their jobs.

The workers said they want to bring awareness to the public so that congress will support the working class.

“We have less letter carriers delivering more mail than ever before, and we are efficient and safe workers...The main thing that is causing the huge deficit in the postal service is the pre-funding requirement enacted by congress in 2006,” said Albert Anchondo, from the National Association of Mail Carriers.

El Paso wasn't the only place to see a rally like this; postal workers around the country held rallies in front of their local congressional office.
