A Letter Sent to the Post Master General
The following letter was sent by a friend of mine to the Post Master General.
Dear Postmaster General,
I understand that you are considering reducing the mail delivery schedule from six days a week to five days. I would like to suggest an appropriate day to cut out of the USPS delivery schedule, and the reasons why. Monday is the most logical day to cut, because it is most financially sound, and is best for the morale and health of all postal employees. Several of the reasons fall into more than one category, so I ask that you to examine these reasons as to why Monday is the best day to add as a USPS day off.
Most federal and state holidays fall on Monday, so there is a savings on holiday pay, and there will be fewer additional days off because all holidays will fall on a regularly scheduled day off for the USPS. The Monday morning hangover of USPS employees and the general public will not conflict with each other on the highway, and will no longer put others at risk on the road. There could also be a reduction in accidents, eliminate false sick days taken, while serving to increase the morale of USPS employees. More can be accomplished by USPS employees with 2 consecutive days off. Imagine being able to include doctor visits and other personal business errands that are impossible to accomplish on weekends because some businesses are closed, or the USPS employee simply refuses to make time on his day off to tend to these tasks.
Other people may find additional reasons why Monday would be the best day off. I am sure if you look at this, you will probably see the benefits as well. If you do need to cut a delivery day each week, this seems to be the most beneficial and offers additional benefits besides cost cutting. If only there was as reasonable way of cutting down on junk mail, but I guess we can't have everything.
