"If your opponent is of choleric temperament, seek to irritate him." - Sun Tzu
what is killing the post office is a combination of
1) changing business climate coupled with a no layoff contract clause with both the APWU and the NALC
2) the requirement of prefunding future pensions
3) a work force that has tons of people on Limited duty and light duty and when congress overruled the Sutton and Williams-Toyota cases, it means the USPS has to "accommodate" thousands upon thousands of workers-iet giving them often unproductive or underproductive assignments
The point OC, when I say "Run like a business", covers many many aspects, and one of those is a mind towards cost effectiveness of how the entity, regardless of WHAT IT IS, compensates employees in relation to it's profit/funding source/sales etc... etc... So while I didn't go into serious detail, and thus you can play the usual OC game of Gotcha waht about this eh!!!!

I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
