DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Some Social Security employees in Des Moines are trying to find ways to protest funding levels at the agency.

An employees union representing Social Security workers plans to hold an informal picket line Wednesday morning outside one of the agency's offices.

The American Federation Of Government Employees Local 836 plans to protest an agency-wide hiring freeze and shortened hours at community field offices.

The local group, which represents about 400 Social Security employees in Iowa and Nebraska, says recent proposals from Congress will cut the agency's operational budget.
