    The President has long advocated against the Postal Service

    The president has long advocated against the postal service. This is not the United States just a nice thing to do for the postal service. If the postal service is privatized, rural America is traumatized, he told Fortune. How Fortune 500 companies use their resources and expertise during the pandemic Why charge members of Congress with insider trading is so heavy fighting tomorrows pandemic, we must think like military today If you have been a little busy lately, heres what happens with the election in 2020 Listen leadership Then a Fortune podcast review the evolving role of CEO WATCH. More politics coverage Fortune. The line in 2006 was that the postal service must be paid in advance now because they were not sure if they’re going to be around 20 years, and the taxpayer will be stuck with the bill, said Hogrogian. The postal service is required by the Constitution to serve everyone in the country and also with uniform rates. Think of the airline industry. Regarding the postal service Im screwed three and has one and a half now, said Paul Hogrogian, president of the National Union Handlers mail. postal advocates believe that the funding initiative before they call onerous and draconian, was intended to force the Postal Service Privatization. Connolly also think negotiation is possible. If the postal service had to terminate some or all of its deliveries, rural America would be left out of the equation or be forced to pay exorbitant prices, explained Hogrogian. The USPS is currently the government agency most trusted in the country with an approval rating of 90% divided almost equally between Democrats and Republicans. But the last congressional relief package, promulgated by the President on Friday, when he went out of his way to call the USPS a joke, does not provide support for the postal service. Ideally, it would be sufficient to maintain the postal service until the election of the presidential candidate Joe Biden, who said he expects the legislation back to support the post office and keep the public. Trump attempts of the government to use the postal service as to the long-term political ambitions fiefdom, said Cleaver, a bad smell. There was a mail volume decline of 5.3%, said Brennan, during the first months of the pandemic in the United States. post office workers are considered essential in Covid 19 saves. Negotiations for the four stimulus currently in committee. While the post office was not included in the stimulus packages to date, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri is still hopeful that the postal service to get something in the next funding cycle. Yet Cleaver think there is a way to negotiate a bailout in the fourth draft stimulus bill. The only way to save the postal service said Fredric Rolando, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers, is to participate in the presidential election to come and vote for Biden. You know, we have a divided Congress and a divided government, and advance Theres things will have to be give and take, said Connolly. If additional funds are not provided, the USPS would be no way forward without significantly reduce staff and cut some services. Connolly said the loans usually contracted Treasury working to take autonomy away from the USPS and closer to privatization. But the agency was rapidly losing money since a 2006 law, passed with the support of George W. To stay afloat, pleads for Congress asking postal service for $ 25 billion in immediate aid, subsidy modernization $ 25 billion in infrastructure overhaul and $ 14 billion in debt forgiveness. The Vermont Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders held a virtual town hall last week with postal union leaders. So FedEx and UPS to get to cherry pick what markets they want to play and if its unprofitable or too remote or too expensive, they come not to do so, said the representative. And while $ 50 billion more debt relief to the tune of another $ 14 billion may seem excessive, Connolly said the issues in perspective, especially in light of the 2.2 trillion stimulus package recently passed by $ the Congress. In a briefing with members of Congress earlier this month, Postmaster Megan Brennan described the extent of the problem. concerned There was initial interest of both parties in a bailout of the USPS by Congress, but according to reports the Washington Post, Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin intervened and threatened to veto any legislation if it included the agreed final $ 13 billion of direct subsidy to the USPS. Trump administration supported the postal privatization and Hogrogian said he was upset by the indignity of trying to use the crisis to carry out their political agenda, rather than state good policy on behalf of the people of this country. More than 1,800 postal workers have either tested positive or are presumed to be positive with the virus, and there have been over 30 deaths Covid 19, according to union officials. Postal Service has made explicitly clear. While the postal service is losing money at an unsustainable rate before the crisis Covid 19, he saw a steep drop and impassable mail volume since. This means that the postal service has to pay for the future of health care employees who were not even born yet. We must act now to protect the postal service. Postal Service is an important part of American life. They are the only universal provider of messaging services and were an anchor at low cost to the postal industry, helping to keep the private courier service rate down. Rolando said he’s focused entirely on short-term measures to maintain the postal service alive, but even money to rescue potential wont provide long-term relief. The Republicans and the White House will have to give the postal relief and they’re going to have to put aside their agendas for the good of the country. So if we can do for the airline industry, and we have, we can certainly do something comparable to the postal service. 1, the postal service expects a loss in revenue of $ 13 billion, the result exclusively of Covid 19. It does not support voting by mail initiatives in response to the crisis Covid 19, he falsely claims lead to an increase of electoral fraud and he also believes that the USPS should load Jeff Bezos and Amazon more money for services of mail they do. Youve got to remember that they do not like the postal service as conservative Republicans because its big, its quasi-governmental, and his union. The Board of Governors Postal Service, which consists of three Republicans (who were all appointed by President Donald Trump) and two Democrats, unanimously approved the request earlier this month following. Trump called for rolling back protections for postal workers and the privatization of land USPSTrumps privatizing the USPS could not come at a worse time, he said. It depends on how we are desperate to get the stimulus through, and it also depends on what else is on the table, he said. We are very concerned that Treasury will take our arms, and would resist it, he said. This is on top of the nearly $ 9 billion the USPS lost each year before the pandemic. mail. As we speak, people order masks by mail, medical supplies and prescriptions, and have even been increasing the burden through voting by mail. Not a productive activity, said Connolly. This is essential for all households and all businesses in America who rely on the daily delivery of their prescription drugs, food, medical equipment, supplies, said Connolly. Now it reached a point where people who are interested in getting the rural vote will have to think deeply about how they’re going to vote. Democrats, for example, were able to negotiate $ 150 billion to state and local governments and $ 400 million to help the electoral advice and support voting by mail. They also say that without the stimulus money, the taxpayers will be forced to pay for retirement benefits anyway. Its a great question, but you have to put it into context, he said. Prescription drugs, Social Security and pension checks would no longer be delivered directly to them, he said, noting that 40% of Americans are still paying and receiving bills by the United States and then when the shot pandemic, they came hat in hand asking for $ 50 billion for a bailout. So not only do they not receive mail, they do not get drugs, they have the ability to communicate. We have had great success in the CARES Act injecting things that the White House and Secretary Mnuchin and Majority Leader of the Senate Mitch McConnell would not accept, he said
