Since the U.S. Post Office is gonna cut approximately 17 % of it’s service, are we gonna see a 17% reduction in labor costs? Are all those folks gonna get their Benefits cut by 17% too?
I mean, I am getting only 5/6 of what I was getting last week. Since the service is less, shouldn’t those people who work (and get paid a LOT for what is, essentially, what would be classified as an unskilled job) get a reduction to 5/6 of their retirement and 5/6 of their insurance benefits too?
Look: somehow the USPS cannot stop hemorrhaging money. It may well be the failure of management, or it may be the workers, or a combination of both. I really don’t care. If they can’t figure out how to do it at a reasonable cost and make it at least break even, then perhaps the lot of them, managers and workers, should be tossed and people found who CAN work in a productive manner. I have never seen a postal worker with any sense of hustle. Never seen one run (unless being chased by a large dog) never seen one appear to be hurrying. Ever.
But seriously, since the consumer (that BTW, is you and me and every other resident, business etc in the US) is getting 17% less service, then are the workers and management getting 5/6 of the pay and benefits? I mean, starting at the Postmaster General and working down.
If not, then WHY NOT?
