Postal retirement is paid for by deductions from employee salaries AND by deposits made to the retirement fund by the Postal Service.

All postal revenues are derived from postage payment, not your precious taxpayers ~ the deal here is that the customers pay ~ a remarkably simple concept some people just can't get through their heads.

Can you show us a historical graph of number of employees vs. volume of first class mail?

Not true. The USPS borrows money from the taxpayers. Also, you keep talking about the pension payments, but I read an article a month ago that said the USPS failed to make the most recent payment. So, you are carping about a payment that they missed?

Really? Thought they were paid like my local union employees.

A cop starting out in San Jose has a base salary and the tax payer contributes 100%. Or $38k + per year towand their retirement. same with fire fighters, librarians earning $200k in base salary and IT guys earning $80k base per year.

Si it’s completely different fir USPS?
