USPS Ends Saturday Delivery (Will Start in August)


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, the financially struggling agency says.

In an announcement scheduled for later Wednesday (Feb. 6), the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.

re: USPS Ends Saturday Delivery (Will Start in August)

Over the past several years, the Postal Service has advocated shifting to a five-day delivery schedule for mail and packages -- and it repeatedly but unsuccessfully appealed to Congress to approve the move. Though an independent agency, the service gets no tax dollars for its day-to-day operations but is subject to congressional control.


So the Quazi Private organization wants to cut back but Congress says no...

Not only that, but Congress is the reason they are going under to begin with. The USPS was actually profitable until they were forced to pre-pay decades worth of pensions, something no private company would ever have to do.

I think their budget for 2013 had them running a $1.4 billion deficit.

Hell of a business model!

And what is the purpose of USPS anymore, other than to get coupons and weekly sales from grocery stores.

Quite wasting millions on advertising that priority ripoff. That'll save a lot of cheese right there.

We have a thread on this on the PB. I mentioned this:

What really messed things up was Congress passing the Postal Accountabilty and Enhancement Act in 2006. This required the USPS to make 104 billion dollars in payment to prepay retirement funds to cover the next 75 years...and to do so in a 10 year span.

Congress controls the price of a stamp.

The USPS is being systematically destroyed through laws to prepare it for privatization.

I wish there was a way to get off the list for receiving shite mail.

Stupid coupon packs and stupid coupon papers that immediately get thrown away. Plus the BS from State Farm or Cox. It's all spam mail basically. Way to really waste paper guys. Good job.
