Join Us to Build a Mass Movement for Postal Banking
Saturday, March 18, 9 am-5 pm, Los Angeles
Sisters & Brothers-More than ever we need to Unite to Take the Offensive to Expand Public Services, Workers & Unions! Adding Public Banks to All 31,606 Post Offices is a Campaign We Can Win !!
40 Million of us in our communities are unbanked/underbanked- Ripped off daily by payday loans, pawn shops, auto title loans, spending $Billions-costing us 10% of our income!
Here’s our way out: Postal Banking: How would you like to go to your neighborhood Post Office to use free ATM’s, cash your payroll check and other checks without fees, pay bills, get small loans, do direct deposit, money orders, prepaid cards, e-commerce, mobile transactions, & international $ transfers?
From 1911-1967 The Post Office had a successful Postal Savings System (PSS) of $3.4 Billion; Today 75% of all US Money Orders are through the Post Office
Postal Banking, like the PSS and Money Orders, would be done by unionized (APWU) workers who already work inside our post offices. The Post Office, with 486,000 workers, is the largest employer of Veterans (130,000) and African Americans (103,000) and Latinos (44,000) in the United States
