14. The new wrecking ball, Louis DeJoy, has put in new rules with IMMEDIATE EFFECT

Some of Louis DeJoy's changes which have crippled the US Postal Service:

- Shutting down mail-sorting machines so workers must do it by hand.

- Requiring letter carriers to LEAVE MAIL BEHIND to avoid extra trips.

- Prohibiting overtime pay.

This has created a massive backlog.

WASHINGTON - The House Oversight Committee has invited the new postmaster general to appear at a September hearing to examine operational changes at the U.S. Postal Service that are causing delays in mail deliveries across the country.

The plan imposed by Louis DeJoy, a Republican fundraiser who took over the top job at the Postal Service in June, eliminates overtime for hundreds of thousands of postal workers and orders that mail be kept until the next day if postal distribution centres are running late.
