Louis DeJoy is not done with us yet, you know, after conspiring with Prznint Stupid to election tampering the mail-in ballots —destroying sorting equipment, stealing collection boxes, and padlocking others— and he’s now setting his sights on helping Big Brown and FedEx:
Postmaster General announces 10-year plan including longer mail delivery times and cuts to post office hours
Longer first-class mail delivery times and cuts to post office hours across the country are among the changes embattled Postmaster General Louis DeJoy announced Tuesday as part of a 10-year plan for the agency.
The sweeping 58-page plan, titled “Delivering for America,” promises to make the Postal Service more competitive and more modern — including a new energy-friendly fleet of delivery vehicles.
I love this idea that the USPS has to be more competitive, so therefore he will make it objectively worse.
It includes investments in “advanced package processing equipment,” upgrades to post offices and uniforms, new technology such as mobile devices for letter carriers, and new employee training.
It also calls for dialing down delivery time expectations, which it notes the system has been unable to meet “over the past eight years.”
I feel like a broken record, but: the USPS is a public service, it does not have to have a profit and given that Congress made it virtually impossible for it to do so by ordering that the USPS pre-pays pensions for 75 years into the future. Does the US Army/Airforce/Navy/Marines/Spaceforce(!) have to turn a profit? (I mean other than Chimpy and Blam-Blam trying to steal the oil in Iraq.)
