(Portland, OR)  --  Postal workers in the Portland area demonstrated on Tuesday to remember the 45 U.S.P.S. workers who have died from COVID-19 nationwide.  They're also concerned about the future of the Postal Service.  They rallied outside of the Southeast Portland Post Office.  There's been a 30-percent drop in mail volume because of the coronavirus effect on the economy, and that's expected to increase to 50-percent by summer.  The Postmaster General says the USPS may be broke by the fall, without a 25-billion-dollar injection of funding from Congress.  President Trump has threatened to veto any bailout package with money for the postal service.
