Wait, wait, wait, wait, let me get this straight, the USPS is broke, which is a federal service, but the government would much rather bail out airlines and banks, rather than bail out an actual essential business that provides services to literally everyone...huh?

All the big mail carriers would love a slice of bulk mail, extremely profitable but they all recoil in horror at providing a universal, low one cost service that the USPS provides.

John, I recently became a member of the Postal Service as is my father who has been working there for 22 years. This video slightly worried me when clicking on it because I was afraid of realizing my workplace was corrupt when in actuality it’s the opposite. Speaking from experience, it is a fantastic place to work, and I truly hope I can get some time there to let my dad retire because he has truly worked his tail off for over two decades. Thank you for bringing this to light and I genuinely hope this can garner some kind of change

I worked for USPS doing data entry about 5 years ago and found out how much of a mess it was then. They kept trying to recruit mail carriers but no one wanted to sell their soul and work 60-80 hours a week for not even 40 hours of pay. They are overworked and money is extremely mismanaged. They brag way too much about not using tax dollars since 1980. It's really so sad because if they went under, we'd all be fucked. People don't know all the services that they actually perform.

You know its kinda funny, i read a lot of fantasy stories. some are better some are worse. But basicly you can, most of the time, extract some of the lessons in the fantasy world to improve the real world. But then again you here this Story here and its basicly Going Postal by Terry Pratched, sure you have no Golems and Banshees in the USA but the rest is basicly the same. For evryone how knows the story already, for the sake of comparison Trump is Gild (without his smarts), for evryone who does not know the Story i can only recommend it and the rest of TP. books.

Congress has FUBAR the postal service big time for a long time. It is congress that created the crazy accounting rule but also wont let prices rise to what is needed and also wont let tiny Post offices already near a bigger one close up.

It still has not arrive in Singapore since September 22. 2: When Would It Arrives in Singapore ? Please kindly reply to me as soon as possible. I look forward to receiving your reply soon. Thank you.

The Postal Service is a complete and utter failure because they promote UNQUALIFIED people to management positions. They bully and make their workers lives (especially Letter Carriers) miserable. They cannot retain CCA's because they made the Letter Carrier job too overwhelming for new hires. They are so stupid and arrogant, they have no clue how to run a business. Why on Earth would a "delivery" business make the "delivery" job a task so insurmountable with overburdened routes and complicated work procedures? That's the REAL reason you are not getting your mail.

Can't believe its still legal to mail living animals vast distances ....the heat and lack of oxygen would near kill them....and even if they miraculously survived that there's always the elemental risk....or the chance that horrible nasty accidents could happen plus the fact that they could be ie crushed or falling out of vehicles etc and so many other horrible awful possibilities that shouldnt happen.... CANT.....just cannot... believe that its still legal and possible/available etc to do something that should've been outlawed long since the 50s ended, about reversal of/going backwards to the past...and back toward what should NOT exist a civil advanced 21st century advanced about MAGA ....this is what they want to return to....a backward time.... except them and their Trump loving cronies...they don't even fucking HAVE TO.....its STILL FUCKING HERE!!!!....🤦🏼‍♂️🙄🤷🏼‍♂️

Here's a type of mail the USPS can definitely monopolizes on, LEGAL DOCUMENTS. That's right, you need official channels for official business, despite how dated the method may be. When you file your taxes, you need the USPS to deliver your tax forms. When you need to pay your court fees, USPS can provide you official mail services. As for the U.S. government, they need your address, they need to know where you live to collect taxes and provide public services like social security checks or unemployment checks. Subpoenas, summons, court appearances, lawsuits, and even invitation letters are included. The best part, it's legal even though the USPS does infringe anti-trust laws. So, if we modify postal service laws like the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, including making Benjamin Franklin (Founding Father & First Postmaster General) as the face of the organization, and authorize "Advertisement Stamps" to help subsidized costs. The USPS is suppose to be heralds of official government communication distribution, not a broken institution that's bankrupting people. In short, no USPS, no tax collection for "Uncle Sam" because everyone will evade them with ambiguous addresses and unregulated accounts.

Kudos to Oliver for bringing up postal banking. I can attest that we have done this in India for years... and now, as a Ph.D. student living in Canada, it surprises me that in a considerably richer country this is not practised. But then, why would you when your politics is geared towards driving money away from the public sector and towards private corporations.

In Italy the postal institute is doing: banking including loans, saving service, sells cell phones, have their own mobile network, can pay bills at the desk. Everything works except the mailing delivery, it is very very slow and expensive compared to US. Another thing, if in the US they will raise the fees four times it will be great, people won't pay that bigger extra fee to Amazon, let say you want to buy a 10 Usd product and the shipping is 4 Usd. I guess people will want to save that extra 4 and buy the product in a real store. Amazon fuc*ed to many small retailers and they are very greed. And don't pay tax. And fuck them

The real target in the Postal Service is their LAW ENFORCEMENT MANDATE. Who would enforce the laws about mail and wire fraud? You cannot privatize law enforcement! Even Putin is afraid of the USPS Postal Inspectors. They should have caught the guy that wrote and mailed those Anthrax postcards! Ever notice how similar the handwriting and writing medium is on those postcards to one DJ Trump?

Lately I been seeing a lot of news about the upcoming 2020 presidential elections. One of the topics that have stood out the most to me is the mail in bailouts. The fact that I experienced & seen mail in voting fraud with my own eyes in Paterson,NJ with delayed received ballots makes me wonder how the presidential election mail in bailouts will turn out nationwide. I don't want to discredit USPS or its workers and I applaud them for there hard work but from what I am observing locally in a highly populated city USPS cant handle that many ballots to be mailed by Nov. on another hand, The fact that the only feasible way to vote in the U.S is through a mail in ballot is absurd and quiet frankly embarrassing. We are living behind our time and with all the technological resources we have available, Voters should be able to vote online without the risk of elections being hacked. I mean there are spaceships that go up to mars and land back on earth, how hard can it be? with that being said, I will not blame the USPS or the postmaster if the ballots were not mailed in time. I blame our complete government.

11:39.that is a huge supposition there. This person is related to this, and that's related to this. A little far fetched. There's no evidence of that, Only a Fear of that. And p.s. this all started because fearful people said, "Trump isn't throwing away mailboxes so no one can vote! Reeeeeeee! When in fact, those mailboxes were being refurbished. Its so weird how many times these scary, fearful stories are spread when it's started by blatant lies, scams, and shills.
