USPS Takes In More Revenue, Needs To Spend More On Workers And Vehicles

Here’s the problem that the U.S. Postal Service has with making money: it’s delivering more packages to quench our thirst for online shopping, but carrying more packages means that the service needs more and upgraded vehicles, and to pay more people to deliver those packages. If the USPS simply reported its profit and loss, it would have had a $200 million profit for fiscal year 2016, but things are not that simple when you’re a quasi-governmental agency.

Excuse me? That's a joke, why would you need more vehicles and people to cover the adjusted territory they already deliver? If it weren't for these small packages they would be under by now!! This is the only business they have, the parcel business that UPS and Fed-ex know isn't profitable got them to mess with. Here's the kicker the USPS uses and has to pay FED-EX for their shipping needs using their airplanes. Why would tgey never have figured out this was an essential piece to a shipping/delivery business

Since they already have the package business, run it as is to make a profit. Then, when you have the profit money, buy the next level.

Or, doesn't that make sense to you?

USPS as well as the Government Printing Office (GPO) provide services that the Government no longer needs to provide to the citizens. I'm sure there are many others.

I absolutely can't wait to hear what happens when the USPS tries to go for another one of their several hundred million dollar bailouts again and Trump slams the door FINALLY!! Hopefully the USPS wI'll be forced to restructure and operate under a skeletal system to do what little peiduct tgey do deliver. If you notice you only get a substantial mail delivery once a week the rest week is a stray piece of junk mail here or there

$2?? That's it? Some of these clowns you see around town are making $30 hour plus straight time just sitting around goofing off. Since when does it take paying soneone 70,000/yr to drop off junk mail. This is prime example of the bureaucratic waste our government has become
