Postal Service Has Too Many Employees and Pays Them Too Much, Mailer Groups Say
The U.S. Postal Service has about 170,000 too many employees and pays them about 30% too much, according to four major mailers groups.
"The notion that the Postal Service operates at the frontier of efficiency-and can do nothing further to reduce costs-is refuted by the record," they wrote in a joint filing with the Postal Regulatory Commission last week.
The Magazine Publishers of America, Direct Marketing Association, the Association for Postal Commerce, and the Alliance of Nonprofit Mailers are objecting to the Postal Service's renewed attempt to get "exigent" rate increases early next year.
