Postal Service Starts Move Toward Five-Day Delivery?……

More for less…….

Add that to the big move to email……and online bill paying…..and internet buying….

And increased salaries for our mail people…..

Compounded but a bad economy…….

And you get less mail…….

The question is……will Congress grant its approval?

As Americans turned more and more from paper to electronic communications, the number of items handled by the post office fell from 213 billion in 2006 to 177 billion last year. Volume is expected to shrink to 150 billion by 2020.

The post office lost $3.8 billion last year and is facing projected losses of as much as $7 billion this year. Other proposals for cutting losses include changes in the financing of retiree health care and closing some mail handling centers and post offices.

Postal Vice President Sam Pulcrano said the agency has set up a Web site where people can learn about the proposal: http://www.usps.com/communications/five-daydelivery/.
