This was on “Inside The Box” one night last week. What do you think?
“Getting mail delivered to your home on Saturday may soon be a thing of the past, as the U.S. Postal Service looks for ways to cut costs.
The post office was nearly $300 million in debt between October and December of last year. That’s usually its best season because of holiday mailings.
The postmaster general is expected to ask Congress to allow them to drop Saturday mail delivery to save money.
Canceling Saturday mail service could save the post office $3 billion a year.
If congress gives its approval, the changes could go into effect sometime in the middle of next year.
So what do you think about this idea? Would you be able to adjust to a 5-day mail schedule? Or do you think the post office should look for other ways to cut costs?”
