Let's outsource the postal service to India and Pakistan! We could save the USPS tons of money. All our mail could be put on airplanes and shipped over there, sorted, and then flown back here. This might also speed up the whole process and take less overall time than it takes the current postal system to do this.Why do people think the price of stamps affects whether this place stays open or closes?
It's about the fact that why do you have a distribution center in Utica when there is another in Syracuse 50 miles away that more than likely can handle the work that Utica does for very little extra overhead.
If you ran a business, would you have as many places open when you could consolidate? Think before you speak.
You people are probably the same people that say well Wal-Mart cashiers should make $15/hr cause Wal-Mart makes alot of money but if they lose money well they should still make $15/hr.
Then you wonder why all U.S. jobs are being shipped to India daily.

Great Idea! That way a large part of the SUNYIT student body that originates from Pakistan and India could have a job doing this!(The 'JOBS' still stay in Utica!!!)
Send the stuff on flights over there to be sorted and shipped back, for $1.73 a day.
in 2005 the UK's National Health Service was air expressing lab samples from London to Mumbai for testing, and it reduced backlog and waiting times for test results.

Ain't that the truth. I see the mail trcuk in the North Utica Burger King parking lot every single day. Not too surprised to find them in Candlewyck Lane Apts on "breaks" Yeah right - a quickie break more like it.

Wow, this is shocking. Thanks to ABC News and Diane Sawyer for running this news story last year.
It's a good thing Thiefmaster Potter is out the door. Maybe he's connected enough to benefit from this area's "FRIENDS & FAMILY" plan?

Happy MLK day is right!!
How can this guy "Wrangle" a deal to remain in Congress? No wonder good people have lost all faith in their so-called "Representatives."
BTW, what have Michael Arcuri and Peter Scalise been up to these days?
Will Richard Hanna be able to change anything for the better in Congress as Vice Chairman of the Highway Subcommittee of the massive House Transportation Committee?
I doubt it.

jealous a bit? u loser! & by the way those are scheduled breaks & are regimented by scanning delivery points!

Yeah, lemme guess. There is a lot of regimentation at the USPS. NOT! Do you think we get what we pay for from USPS? Almost half a buck for a 1.0 ounce FCM letter? C'mon...privatize the post office. Pull it off the government teat and let it stand on it's own two feet or collapse.
Who is gonna miss it when it's gone? NOT ME!

actually, and you can look this one up, the post office does not accept one cent of tax money. i'm sure you think i'm making that up but, as a former postal employee i happen to know that for a fact. i can also tell you that it is the most mis-managed institution next to congress. i hated going to work with every fiber of my being. i understand why people go postal at those toilets... the management is the worst. they'll just keep beatin' ya down till you give in or quit. i quit to save my marriage and am better off for it.
