Postal Service needs a new service model

Email

With the U. S. Postal Service on the edge of bankruptcy, Postmaster General Patrick Donahue - backed by the General Accountability Office (GAO) - is proposing drastic across-the-board cuts to stabilize the agency.

Preliminary plans include abolishing 3,600 of the agency's 31,000 post offices, mostly in the rural areas, eliminating next-day service, raising rates, stopping Saturday deliveries, and consolidating half of the 500 mail processing centers.
