If your goal is to reduce labor costs, and I’m sure that is DeJoy’s primary goal, it makes perfect sense. It doesn’t help that the situation was seriously broken beforehand, we the USPS locked into a union contract that made efficiency improvements hard, and with serious unfunded pension liabilities. How would you get out of it without a massive infusion of taxpayer money?
I don’t see how getting rid of sorting machines (and consequently sorting by hand) reduces labor costs.
