Starting Off At $21.00 An Hour

Western North Dakota isn't a boom town just for oilers. Mailmen and women can make a mint, too. The Postal Service gives mail carriers pay raises up to 20 percent and $1000 bonuses. Newcomers will earn more than $21 an hour, plus benefits. The Postal Service says it will fill about 36 positions. Rapid population growth has led to long lines at post offices and late or undelivered mail. Donald Maston is executive committeeman for the National Rural Letter Carriers Association. He says even fast food restaurants in the area paid employees more than the postal service did before this agreement.
