March 19, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The failure of post office officials to grant posts to Jews, long the subject of criticism in Jewish circles in Poland, was met following repeated requests, by the appointment of one Jewish post office clerk by the Director of the Lublin Post Office.

The dissatisfaction of the Jewish population with the Government Department over the fact that Jews were not employed in the post office was voiced recently at a meeting of the Budget Commission. In reply to the criticism, Postal Minister Miedzinski declared that his department does not discriminate against Jewish employees. It is true that applicants for employment must state their race and religion, but the fact of the matter is that Jewish applicants are reluctant to accept the post of carriers because of the difficult work and low wages.
