Instead of railing against Wall Street, last night the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters decided to join with postal workers in New York City at a protest against a five-day delivery week, which many believe will severely harm the postal service and cause significant job losses.

“A lot of people will lose their jobs and lose their wages, and we don’t need that right now,” a postal worker told Gianni Lazuli, the filmmaker behind Fluxview USA. “Not in this day and time.”

This video is from “Occupy Wall Street,” filmed Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011.
