Postal Service Cuts Saturday Mail Delivery

I'm glad I will only get shitty service 5 days a week now

quote:

The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays but continue to deliver packages six days a week under a plan aimed at saving about $2 billion annually, the financially struggling agency says.
In an announcement scheduled for later Wednesday, the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.

I guess people will be shocked that a government run agency is inefficient. What a joke this is all becoming. It is run piss poor, yet we keep making it bigger.

But but but... The postal service is self sufficient, it doesn't get tax money.

Well aside from the billion dollar bailouts they keep receiving

I will give them "some" credit for the decision but it should have happened years ago.

isn't part of the problem that congress has to approve their changes in service?

I'd like them to switch to an every other day delivery model; especially in more rural areas.

C...I'm not sure about that, but I believe the unions have been fighting it ever since they began looking at ways to cut costs.

This is the same group that spent $30 million to sponsor a bike rider in France.....you know that country where the US postal service is so vital.

Good thing except I will miss my Saturday gutter-cleaning coupon! Hope they will still mail it, maybe on a Monday?

Cut the guaranteed benefit structure for life and the employee-size. These will decrease costs immediately.

I originally had it to watch a few TV series. I think I may do the same and just use redbox. Once HBOgo came around I no longer needed it.

re: Postal Service Cuts Saturday Mail Delivery
So are the salaries going to be cut to reflect less work?
