I have several domestic packages stuck for more than a month. NOT A HAPPY TAX PAYER.
this is very interesting indeed but in a depressing wayThis story has been percolating on Twitter for a few weeks, but it's increasingly being reported on by mainstream news outlets. I figured it would be of interest to those of us who rely on the US Postal Service to deliver our orders. First we had to deal with shipping delays because of the coronavirus, and now we have to deal with this. Without getting too political, this is absolutely being done on purpose with the ultimate goal of making people not trust the USPS.
"the changes could have real-world consequences, including, he says, delays in delivering medicine, census forms — and even mail-in ballots, adding the notion of leaving mail behind 'runs counter to everything' postal workers believe."
the changes "are ostensibly about fiscal responsibility but have contributed to mail being delayed across the country and have postal workers concerned they’re no longer being allowed to do their jobs."
"Bins of mail ready for delivery are sitting in post offices because of scheduling and route changes. And without the ability to work overtime, workers say the logjam is worsening without an end in sight."
"The machines that typically sort mail and prepare them for pickup by carriers are being shut down earlier in some areas to cut costs, requiring carriers to sort more mail by hand."
For cripes sake follow the money. My tax dollars are paying political appointees that are f*cking up the post office delivery.
