I STILL do NOT understand WTF this Trump guy is the PostMaster…..
The United States Postal Service on Thursday proposed raising prices ahead of its peak season, a temporary adjustment it says will help handle the holidays.
Rates for priority mail, first-class services and ground shipping would increase by as little as 25 cents in some cases, and as much as $6.50 in others, according to a release.
The temporary increase, now pending approval by the Postal Regulatory Commission, would be in effect from Oct. 2 through Jan. 23.
The price hike would be part of the Postal Service’s 10-year plan to avoid some $160 billion in projected losses.
President Biden signed into law a reform bill for the Postal Service, a response to concerns that the mail-carrying service was operating at such a loss that it risked running out of funds by 2024….
