If you want to read the article I read this morning you can find it here..though I imagine some other articles may have more information. Regardless, here are the main points:
- Talks of ending Saturday mail delivery
- Increasing first class postage to 50 cents either in one year..or over the course of a few years
- Slowing first class delivery by one day
My thoughts? Well, I will have to do some more looking, but I had an article to share about cutting the Saturday delivery. Second, I really think they should have increased the first class postage to 50 cents with this last round of increases. 50 cents is a nice round number AND it would have saved us from increasing postage every 6 months. (Not that it bothers me too much, but still..I would rather take the increase all at once than every couple months). Slowing the first class delivery probably wont affect much other than packages. In my opinion letters and mail in general is worth waiting for. So why rush it? After all..it is called snail mail for a reason.
Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts..and as soon as I find time..I will write a longer post about the Saturday mail delivery issue.
