    They are losing money because they have a union eating them from the inside. Their workers don't fear being fired so many of them are lazy pieces of shit.

    I've been getting my mail delivered after 6pm, in the dark. What the fuck is the mail boy doing all day to not get done before dinner?

    2 weeks ago I actually had to go to the post office to pick up a registered letter and this asshole behind the desk was studying for what looked like some post service test until he finally decided to help me. What the fuck is he reading at the front desk?

    These assholes are protected by their unions, so they work slower and cost USPS more money on getting the mission done. They know it takes an act of God to fire them especially if they are a minority worker or so-called disabled.

    This is what happens when the union cancer gets into an organization.

    There IS no other daily letter delivery in the USA.

    Wait till the PO dies and you will pay $5 per letter for delivery.

    Also many laws will have to change since many legal notifications and such require US mail delivered notices, etc.

    To inject sanity into this whole argument--

    The question is, is the post office a business or is it a public service?

    If it's the latter, then, yes, they will operate at a loss, just like your local police department or your local fire department does.

    If it's the former, it needs to make some changes because its business model has changed.

    The Post Office is in trouble because E-mail has largely replaced letters as a form of communication and even paying bills. So they are rethinking their business model to offer other services while still maintaining their legally required mandate of daily postal delivery.

    Shhhh... they are too busy hating on Postal Workers for maintaining good wages when they are waiting for their bosses to recognize their "Merit".

    To sum up the problems of the USPS, it's part of the federal bureaucracy.
