Will All Post Offices Close?
Nope. They just plan to increase the price of stamps.
The United States Postal Service is having a difficult time staying in business. Strapped for cash, the Postal Service proposed an increase in the price of stamps in the tunes of 3 whole pennies.
Making lemonade out of lemons, USPS chose the stamp because it’s the garners the most revenue, despite the plummeting sales.
USPS is having such a difficult time in fact, that they’re not only charging more for stamps but they’re also spending half a million dollars on a “stamp futurist.” The futurist will help USPS determine how profitable stamps will be in the future, since most people have moved from snail mail to email.
So that’s where those 3 pennies are going!
What are your thoughts on the stamp rate hike?
