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

i don't have it right off hand (it's in a DOS file) ~ but basically there were just under 1/2 million employees in the post office department about 1966 ~ mail volume was 25 billion pieces. There are currently just a few more than 1/2 million emplopyees in the USPS ~ mail volume was 200 billion pieces.
That's an aggregate 700% productivity improvement! The price of a first class stamp (for one ounce or less) adjusted for inflation is about the same now as it was then.
