$2 billion dollars a year vs no mail on saturday
Apparently, the federal government has decided that the best way to save the slowly dying USPS is to cut services on Saturday. Apparently, not delivering mail is going to save billions of dollars. I find it hard to believe that this is going to fix anything. When it was brought up earlier that delivery cuts should be made, it was determined that this would not save any money and that cut service was not the best idea, so what happened?
I dont think that the USPS really looked at the root of the problem, a problem which seems easy to fix for me at least. Where i live, there is no set time for mail, it can come at any time throughout the day. Add to the fact that the mail carrier who delivers mail to my address is not the same carrier who delivers mail to the person across the street from me. The cherry on top is that we live a stone's throw from a post office. If anything, the service should be better and consistant, but its not. Maybe this is what they should have looked at instead of paying letter carriers to not work on saturday.
