Like no more Saturday mail ever? For everyone? When did this happen?

Found it...


The service expects the Saturday mail cutback to begin the week of Aug. 5 and to save about $2 billion annually, said Postmaster General and CEO Patrick R. Donahoe.

The good news is, packages will still be delivered on Saturdays.  They just won't be delivering letters, ads, and other types of mail on Saturdays.  I don't get much mail on Saturdays (often none at all), but I was a little upset when I heard this earlier today.  It was almost inevitable, though.  The postal service is so broke.

My dh worked for the post office for 5 yrs. He quit about a month ago. They are NOT happy with it. My husband was a sub and now with saturdays cut most of the subs will be let go. It's not as bad for the regulars who have their own routs but they are still mad because they will have 3 days worth of mail every monday to deliver.

so they will still get mail delivered to their office on saturday? I hear the office will be open on saturdays they simply wont drive to your home on sat. so they would still organize the mail and everything. that still sucks because cars will be fuller and what not. i get other ppls mail so much these days as it is. makes me wonder how much more ill get thats not mine and where my freebies are going. Im sorry for your hubs. :( My mail ladies are the same every day. 1 week its 1 lady next week its another so i cant forsee anyone losing work but i guess subs would have an issue :(

its all USA and because they will save something like $2 million dollars. But I wonder if thats why they upped the rates of shipping. to cover their costs of working?

1 mom liked this

I think they should have cut like Wednesday instead. So many people work all week and can only get to the post office on Saturdays. It is such a shame.
