This has been delayed: U.S. Postal Service To Stop Delivering Mail on Saturdays
 
"The U.S. Postal Service will stop delivering mail on Saturdays but continue to deliver packages six days a week under a plan aimed at saving about $2 billion, the financially struggling agency says."

I don't usually get much of anything on Saturdays anyway. It will be especially nice in the winter not to have to go out in the cold and snow on Saturdays for the mail if I don't have anything else to go out for either.

That sounds like the USPS is being unjustly picked on, but I know several people that are about to retire from the PO and believe me, they should be required to pre-fund their retirement. Their union has become so aggressive that they are forced to keep people on staff that would have been fired from most any other job. The salaries are ridiculous and the amount of overtime paid out is unbelievable. The layoffs spoken of in the article will include a handsome bonus that my friends are hearing rumors of about $25,000/person. Many are delaying their retirement just to take advantage of the impending offer. I think it's time they had to tighten their belt.

also the tiny amount they pay for heath insurance is a joke.
