Mail should continue to be delivered six days a week

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
Last month, Postmaster General Patrick Donohoe announced plans to end six-day mail delivery in August of this year. This flies in the face of existing law, which requires six-day delivery. Congress has mandated six-day delivery since 1983, which is also the last year that the U.S. Postal Service received any taxpayer funding. The people who would suffer include not just postal workers but small business, seniors, veterans and rural Americans.
