All those stamp rate hikes by the United States Post Office apparently haven’t paid off. The struggling government mail delivery service has announced it will be doing away with Saturday delivery.
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.
In an announcement scheduled for later Wednesday, the service is expected to say the Saturday mail cutback would begin in August.
“I say shut the whole thing down or sell it. Let’s sell it to a private entrepreneur,” Glenn said in response to the news.
