Postal Service proposing cutting 120,000 jobs

Post by Guest on Fri Aug 12, 2011 1:00 am

The financially strapped U.S. Postal Service is considering cutting as many as 120,000 jobs.

Facing a second year of losses totaling $8 billion or more, the agency also wants to pull its workers out of the retirement and health benefits plans covering federal workers and set up its own benefit systems.

Congressional approval would be needed for either step, and both could be expected to face severe opposition from postal unions which have contracts that ban layoffs.

Boy, this would be a terrible blow to the economy (including the unemployment figures) if this were to occur.

IMHO, they'll reach some sort of compromise where they won't have to let go of that many workers, or close that many small locations though. It looks like they're posturing right now.

Hmmmm ..... Guess my husband can't apply for any more postal jobs now. Been on the list (after taking test) for 3 years now and has not been called for anything. A few months ago they requested his motor vehicle records. Since we had a weather related accident last year, they probably won't consider him since driving is involved. Heck, he would love to deliver mail on foot like they did in the old days!

The real ruth is the GOP wants to privatize it so they can rape it and run it into the ground.

Both parties want to privatize everything - they're fighting over the spoils as we speak. If you've been paying any attention at all to the legislation that's been proposed on the floor of Congress, you will see their agenda free and clear. It looks like while the Fox Noise machine had the goomers in an uproar over "socialized" medicine, the republicon apparatchik was working feverishly around the clock to get the first and most important segment of it's plan in place - take over state gov't, because they would then have the power to redistrict in a manner that would ensure permanent republicon seats. How could this have been overlooked by the so-called "left" especially when Tom DeLay was under fire for doing this very thing? Not only has our federal gov't been privatized compliments of Citizens United, but our state legislatures as well. Now the oligarchs can begin transferring our nation's wealth - we're just around to pick up their tab. I find it impossible to believe that the democrats weren't aware of the con - we're being played like a fiddle.
