Post office killing jobs

-A +A
I think that the U.S. Postal Service should not go through with its plan to cut costs by slowing down its first-class mail delivery time and killing 28,000 jobs. The economy is already suffering from lack of jobs. This will add 28,000 to the people who don’t have the money to buy everything that they would otherwise buy. This means that there are suddenly a lot less people able to afford mailing things, so the post office gets less money. Also, if the mail starts getting slower, people will start using electronic alternatives to send letters more often, so the post office would lose even more money. Most likely, this proposed change will lose more money than it will save. ROBBIE PARSONS, student, Meadow Vista
