The fact that the local postal workers union, and I guess some UAW members and other union members, picketed the closing of the local mail sorting branch on a day the post office was closed to celebrate the Italian Stallion’s birthday is fitting.
If the USPS says the mail from Smallburg, Kentucky should to to Nashvegas to be sorted, so be it. What is the problem? The USPS should be rewarded for having the guts to take some serious action.
Some people are genuinely upset that the mail sorting branch is closing.
1. Mail will take longer to get across town: Um, No. If Netflix via USPS can pick up my watched DVD on Monday and deliver an unwatched DVD on Wednesday, it will not take longer for mail to get across town. Nashvegas is only 70 miles or so away. On a truck that’s about 45 minutes time!
2. USPS workers will lose their jobs. Yes, probably. Picketing won’t keep them here, it just shows how irrelevant it is to belong to a union anymore. Can you name a union that can bring our economy to it’s knees anymore effectively than the Union of Greedy Wall Streeters?
“All of our post offices are important to our neighborhoods, provide convenience for our residents and jobs in our region. For many Bridgeport residents, particularly the poor and the elderly, a neighborhood post office is an essential part of the community.”
Horse hockey. The geezers who gather at the P.O. to solve the world’s problems would still show up. Most wouldn’t notice the P.O. was closed.
Next up: Stop delivering one day out of six. Maybe Tuesday. Nothing good ever comes on Tuesday. Not even my Netflix DVD shipment. I’m on a Monday/ Wednesday schedule. Except when Monday is a postal holiday. Rats.
