Tisha Thompson, Investigative Reporter, NBC 4 Investigative Team

The U.S. Postal Service is never more in demand than now, the year-end holiday season. But Postal employees face more than a heavy workload. Year-round, they're dealing with the threat of assaults as they make their rounds, sometimes in the dark. Then there's this: Postal Service employees who have faced sexually assault by their coworkers. In a new report by the NBC News-4 Investigative Team, two Postal workers told investigative reporter Tisha Thompson what they said happened to them and the retaliation they faced after speaking out. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss her investigation.
