120,000 Postal Workers Could Be Laid Off

I feel for these people. In my opinion, this shows what happens when a large organization sticks to an old way of looking at the world.

If only the USPS, in the 1990's, had seen its chance to become an Internet service provider of choice for the country, instead of fixating on competing on package delivery with UPS and FedEx.

(To be fair, the USPS did a great job in that race - at least I think so - but people don't exactly communicate via package).


USPS asks Congress to allow it to lay off 120,000 postal workers -
