US postal service LAYING OFF 40,000
Postal Service Looks To Cut 40,000 Jobs In First Layoff In History
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - "We lost 2 billion dollars and like any other business we have to stay afloat." And to keep from sinking, the United States Postal Service is considering cutting thousands of jobs nationwide. Lavelle Pepper with the post office in Shreveport says they too are feeling the affects of the same disease hitting the country... a struggling economy. "We employ about 685,000 people. If we do layoffs it would include clerks, carriers, mail handlers across all crafts."
Comments: Who would layoff 40k DISGRUNTLED POSTAL WORKERS? Are they crazy? Can you imagine what will happen to their managers? Ouch.
