I THINK ALL CORPORATIONS and all government agencies should have to prepay and reserve their employees retirement funds

The post office has what are essentially internal temps who receive less pay and little or no benefits. These folks work many different routes and are being increasingly used to replace career employees. They infrequently work routes so they don't have them memorized like permanent employees would. Lower-quality service is a direct result of the cost-cutting measures. The post office has eliminated at least 110,000 jobs since 2007, but the number of addresses has stayed the same or possibly increased with growth in suburbs.

Yeah we get to play the weekly neighborhood "mail swap" since our carrier(s) can't seem to read.

I'd love to just have a consistent letter carrier on our route again and somewhat regular delivery times. For the last year it's been "mailman of the day" and delivery is anywhere from 9 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m.

Maybe not, but I'd guess several people will show up here to complain about it.
