On Postal officials: No layoffs planned at local post offices, despite upcoming cessation of Saturday mail delivery

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. They are cutting Saturday first class mail to save money, yet no one is getting laid off, and packages will still be delivered...

Not that I wish anybody to lose their job, but where is the savings? Are the postal workers hourly and thus will be taking home less money?

There won't be as much overtime paid out. With mail delivery 6 days per week, you always have someone that is sick or on vacation, and others have to cover that route, thus OT is paid out. Less days of work per week = less of an opportunity for OT.

I know several folks who work for the post office and they all are of the opinion that one of the problems with the post office is that they are top heavy in management positions.
