So once again the USPS is bankrupt and demanding billions in additional subsidies to continue. Here are some fun facts about this obsolete organization:
80% its budget goes for salaries and benefits, compared to 61% UPS, 43% FedEx
$41 per hour average union pay vs. $28 private sector
No layoffs, per contract
31,000 branch offices (more than McDonalds, Walmart and Starbucks combined). 80% of all branches lose money.
