United States postal workers are protesting the possible shutdown of more than 200 Texas post offices, eight in North Texas.
They claim that despite a loss of $8 billion by the post office in 2010, the Postal Service can afford to keep doors open.

The eight North Texas locations include three in Fort Worth, three in Dallas and one each in Arlington and Mesquite.
