Sixth day cut means no job for me

I am a substitute carrier. I work every Saturday. I also work part time as a substitute teacher in 2 school districts. If the USPS cut the 6th day of delivery it will have a huge affect on substitute mail carriers. The majority of what I make a year comes from working for the USPS. I will essentially lose my job, along with thousands, if not more, other substitute mail carriers. That will definitely affect the economy. For example, if this happens, I will have to seek state aid. I will apply for free school lunches for my children, medicaid for my children, food stamps, and possibly unemployment. If I can't find another job, (which considering the fact that everyday more of my friends and relatives are losing jobs),will we be forced to move in with a relative and possibly lose our meager $50,000 home. We obviously will not be able to purchase any little extras, such as a new pair of shoes for one of our children, or a dinner out once a month, just the little things that our barely helping someone else keep their job.
