You have a huge staff - dwindling customers.
What would you do?
Cut salaries, look at my pricing structure to see if there is any group/class that I could raised rates on and not lost more income then I gain by so doing.
Hell look at if there is any class of users that by lowering the rates I
could gain more business then I lost income.
Look at every service provider contract to see if I could reduce overhead.
Look at cutting down the current funding of the pension plans future benefits for a few years.
Begin to reduce the work force by having buy outs and hiring freezes.
The last the very very very last thing I would do however is place a 120,000 wage earners out of work right now.
Congress except for the insane tea party members should be of the same opinion and back the postal service every move short of having massive layoffs for the next few years at least.
