Who says April is the cruelest month? April 10 will bring a postage price reduction for mailers and consumers. The U.S. Postal Service will roll back prices on many of its products by an average 4.3 percent.
No pain no gain. The U.S. Postal Service has reduced spending over the past decade but it has come with a downside, notably a reduction in service. Over the past decade the Postal Service has reduced labor costs by $10 billion, improved productivity, and generally reined in spending.
