Even With 50-cent Stamps?

35,000 jobs go POOF!

Facing a financial crisis, the United States Postal Service announced that 223 processing facilities have been “found feasible for consolidation, all or in part.” Of the 264 processing facilities studied, only 35 are set to remain open.

The closings could result in the loss of 35,000 jobs. USPS has posted a full list of the facilities — which process and sort mail on its way to being delivered — on its website.

The postal service said the changes could help it reduce its operating costs by $20 billion by 2015, making the service profitable once more.
