    USPS Closings To Lead To Tens Of Thousands Of Job Cuts



    " close or consolidate 223 mail processing centers and eliminate up to 35,000 jobs as part of its strategy to cut costs by reducing its network of facilities."

    "They also announced plans to end next-day delivery to cut back on overnight work."

    "The Postal Service, which does not receive taxpayer funds, wants Congress to eliminate an annual payment to prefund retiree health benefits and let it end Saturday mail delivery."

    I understand they need to make changes but I hope that they don't eliminate express mail. I know that the main distribution area near me is scheduled to be closed, which will slow delivery down as it is.
