43. All true. Potter has spent 8 years fucking up the postal service in order to
sell privatization. Over the last few years they have quietly switched more and more service to "contractors" that are paid much less, get none of the federal or union benefits, are not subject to the same regulations as regular carriers, and as the inevitable result service gets worse.

There is also a move afoot to eliminate the rural system all together, turning it all over to the contractors.

Those six-day routes and the forced surrender of vacation time are just ways to get carriers to quit/retire or otherwise leave. Maybe the new PMG will turn this around.
