Atlanta USPS Mail Carrier Explains Late Mail Deliveries
11.09.2017 - CBS 46 reports: "She said post offices are understaffed citywide, which forces carriers to take on extra routes, and it puts them in dangerous situations when they inevitably have to deliver mail at night. The anonymous USPS employee said the tough working environment has some carriers quitting their routes at sundown, whether they're finished or not, and some are looking for new jobs altogether, which does not help the understaffing issue. She also described management treating employees worse in response to complaints about working extra hours." - Postal worker robbed delivering mail after-hours in Fulton County - Comments (Count)
