    Best redirect your anger and frustration to exactly where it belongs, namely your local postal branch. The Postmaster General has absolutely no control over how your local services operates, he is also held at bay by the The American Postal Workers Union which protect inept workers from being fired/ So direct your complaints to your local Postmaster and file grievances with your Representatives to make changes to your local postal issues. Yes, I used to work as a mail sorter for the USPS so I speak from experience as a witness to the internal workings of the postal system.

    I am US Army Veteran and I have my own Tractor with no Trailer. I have a CDL license since 2018. is there any opportunity for me?

    I’ve had 6 envelopes disappear in the last 2 months. All letters were payments to utility companies and had personal checks inside. I received shutoff notices due to non-payment. How can so many pieces of mail be lost? The Postmaster General, DeJoy, is a real tool.
