How Does USPS Get Underwater Products Above Water?

When it comes to postal products that don’t cover their costs, the Postal Service finds itself in a no-win situation. The Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) requires the Postal Service to make sure all products cover 100 percent of their direct costs. Products that fall below costs (also known as underwater products) violate PAEA.
