For years the U.S. Postal Service's financial woes have been discussed and there have been cutbacks in an effort to reduce the agency's staggering deficit.
"Patrick Donahoe, the postmaster general, has repeatedly said that by 2015 he hopes to cut $20 billion from the agency’s annual costs, which are now about $75 billion," the New York Times reported Monday. "He has called for closing up to 3,700 of the nation’s 32,000 post offices, while reducing deliveries to five days a week from six, and cutting the agency’s work force of 653,000 employees by more than 100,000."
On Monday the USPS announced it will shut about half of its 487 mail processing centers across the nation. This could mean that "next-day delivery" becomes a thing of the past.
