    In the beginning, the CONSTITUTION created the USPS. Where did it EVER mention DELIVERY to the American household? NEVER! And so, It began.
    The UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT HAD NO LEGAL RIGHT TO SEPARATE THIS ESTABLISHED BUREAU INTO A “DELIVERY” business!!!
    NEVER, EVER according to the LAWS/REGULATIONS set forth per ELM, WERE THESE GIVEN DIRECTIVES FOLLOWED NOR ADHERED TO BY ALL LEVELS OF USPS MGMT TO THIS DAY!!
    FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE LAWS/REGULATIONS HAS RESULTED IN :
    1) EPIC FINANCIAL FAILURE
    2) GROSS NEGLIGENCE RESULTING IN EPIC SICKNESSES/INJURIES!!!

    All usps carriers, familly members are right. I’m a carrier for 11 years more loyal then a dog. I been with stress and anxiety do to all the pressure abuse of power, harrassment, treats of firering me. According to them I’m not good enough for them, and bulling from managers and supervisors. We are presure to skip our luch and breaks. The union ignores the issues. An EEO is not always efective and last time I worked I was picked up by the ambulance, I been hospitalice more then one time for my condition. I was fired and did not received a notice of insurance termination. They took 4 months and it was untill I requested that they mail my checks. I’m not geting disability, I’m fighting to stablish workers comp. I have kids believe me the last I need is to stay home. I need to work, my doctor took me off work. I requested a transfer and is not happening. Usps is not the best work for your health. Voe survey sucks. We get no solutions. I done everything even let management walk all over me just to be able to provide for my kids. The worst some times we are not alowed to leave our routs to go to the restroom wich is impared to our health. Specially when prégnant. All I know is that we are quick to judge when we never been in a situation like ours. Now I have no money, and no job when I worked 11years 10-to 12 hours monday thrue saturday. No day off. Only sunday. Im stress and full off enxiety because of managers and anprofetional supervisors.

    Nothing but harassment from supervisors and management. Watched unqualified workers pass me for positions due to not being part of the good old boy system that only promotes friends and family. Horrible place to work if you can do better don’t waste your time.
