Change in status quo is always hard.
Tell me again why Saturday mail delivery is so important?
Many businesses are not even open to take the delivery.
Personally I would be fine with every other day delivery to private residents!

There is no real justification for Saturday delivery in today's world of email, texting, etc. Probably 90% of the main I receive is junk and ends up in the recycle bin.

It is about time that congress lets them take control of their own destiny. It is criminal that they know it is going down the tubes, but won't at least let them take steps to slow it down...

Saturday mail delivery is a waste of resources, but if they want Saturdays so bad, get rid of Wednesday delivery, I get all junk mail on that day.

Saturday delivery is hardly the problem. And ending Saturday delivery is hardly going to solve all the woes of this bottomless pit known as the USPS.

The time is long past where the USPS can support itself (if that time ever existed), and congress cannot continue to bail them out. Let it hit the wall, and then allow the whole thing to sink or swim on their own. Private delivery is already out performing the USPS, and they do it much more efficiently. It's a plan that is long overdue.

LOL oh, ok. So now anyone working a non-union job is the working poor? It's fun watching your mind get more and more fouled, as each day passes by.

Libs are so stupid.

The Seattle Sociopath is the rare exception where I can in complete confidence declare that her stupidity is a Condition of Birth, unlike most of the Sheeple that have made choices to become as stupid as they choose to remain.
