Does the public realize how many jobs will be lost with this move to stop 6 day delivery. That isn't going to help the economy. Think about what you are doing here.
They are becoming irrelevant, their services are hardly used. People pay their bills online and they have to compete with UPS and Fedex on shipping. I mean I haven't even bought a stamp in 7 years. They have to make cuts, no problem with me. I agree with first post [Maybe drop Wednesday also, or deliver M,W,F.]. Just would feel bad for the drivers getting less hours, but from what I hear they are well compensated.
It's going to hurt how many dvd's I can squeeze out of Netflix each month, but putting that aside I think they could cut back another day or two. Maybe drop Wednesday also, or deliver M,W,F. Still offer package delivery each day and overnight service if that is profitable.
...and avoid them being late or lost due to the inept nature of the USPS operations. They did this to themselves. Bye-bye.....
Do this to themselves the Congress did it to them Guesttenheimer.
And the USPS is mandated by the Constitution - it is the ONLY business that is MANDATED.
If you want to do away with this mandate then the mandate that we have to carry arms can go away too.
Be careful here....
Vog, while it is mandated, it is one of the worst run agencies in government. If the Postal Service is going to compete with private enterprise, then let them at least break even. If not, sink. I agree with some of the others. Cut service to three days a week. I hardly receive any mail that is not junk anyway. UPS and FED EX deliver 99% of the packages I receive. Become profitable, at least break even or fall by the wayside.
I used the USPS for most of my adult life and never had 1 bill late or lost. I pay all mine online now as you do but its easier for me to do that.
And that my friend is the reason the USPS my very well go to a five day delivery. 1. The internet and 2. The " It does not affect me attitude ". They claim the Post office will save over two billion a year. The only way they could even come close to this amount is the money they will save at the expense of the letter carriers. Mail will still move and offices will still be open. Operating expenses will remain more or less the same.
