Busting myths about the U.S. Postal Service

without comments

The Postal Service has been in the news a lot lately. Sometimes the information isn’t entirely accurate. It’s time to dispel common myths associated with the Postal Service.

Myth: The Postal Service wastes taxpayer dollars.

Fact: the Postal Service receives NO Tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage and other products and services to fund operations. We’re required by law to cover our costs. And it’s been that way for more than 30 years.

Closing the Youth Gap

Closing the Youth Gap | USPS OIG.

As the U.S. Postal Service remakes itself into a leaner organization in the face of a communications revolution, it still remains a powerful medium and an important part of the nation’s infrastructure. A smaller Postal Service will still be huge, with more than $60 billion in projected revenue. It will not disappear tomorrow.

A lingering concern remains, however, that the Postal Service is becoming less relevant to younger Americans. A recent public opinion poll by The New York Times and CBS supports this conclusion. According to the poll, only 30 percent of people under 45 say they use the mail “all the time.”
