NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Close to 100 postal workers crowded the sidewalk along Centennial Park Sunday to protest the United States Postal Service's plans to cut Saturday delivery.

They held signs which read "Save Our 6," in reference to number of days the Post Officer currently delivers mail and packages.

"That one day is gonna cut jobs and we don't know who's gonna be affected and I don't want to see anyone lose their job so that's why I'm out here in support of the six day," explained Demetrius Hobson a letter carrier Jackson.

The Post Office says it will save $2 billion a year by cutting Saturday service, but as it stands right now Congress will not allow them to make such a significant shift in services.

"This will affect everyone," said Hobson.
