    Two more overpaid, corrupt, unethical, completely unnecessary positions. Wonder who’s relatives they are, and how many more of their own relatives they’ll now hire.

    USPS = clown show.

    One can never have enough vices.

  3. Jim says:

    Another two ass kissers, nepotism of fat ass pmg, the ps is going to lose more profit to feed up these scumbags.

  4. nogjr says:

    I believe the count of VPs now exceeds 43! All of them earn over $200k + benefits. Wonder why we are losing money? Remember, if you do not touch the mail, you are an unnecessary employee. Each of these VPs also has a full staff working for them. Congress needs to investigate the incredible amount of over-micro-management that exists at the PO

  5. E. Maiden Johnson says:

    Their short stint in the ever changing P.O.dictates they must have more tenure to perform any duties other than because I say so you do it or else. Don’t know a spib from a postcard or a flat from a parcel. No wonder the fox guards the hen house.

  6. TENNESSEE MAN says:

    WOW! We’re broke and hire 2 more vice-presidents and they’re Salary
    Alone is $200,ooo a year plus benefits. And the workers get job loss
    And treated like crap. CONGRESS needs to investigate this corrupt
    Postmaster general and should be fired. This is awefull, more TOP
    FAT WEIGHING DOWN THE POSTAL SERVICE.

    maybe they will be smart enough to figure out we wont need a gps device if they evaluate our routes and let us do them

  8. Miami John says:

    Who wrote this news release? Don’t know how to proof read before you send releases out? Wow. A quick count 6 errors!

  9. Retired Postal Worker says:

    Great, more GOONS to lead us into Bankruptcy. Why don’t you just go and hide in the Vatican with all the other egregious pedophiles hide.

  10. Maria says:

    Really? I am on my 2nd plant consolidation in 3 years…. People very well will be losing their jobs and they hire some more VPs?!?! What a fine organization we work for.

  11. sickofthis says:

    Just counted 34 VP’s and who knows if the numbers are right on the USPS website.Fact is,NO PRIVATE SECTOR COMPANY HAS THIS MUCH OVERHEAD.And they always want us to operate like a private sector company.We are a public service company.And no one will ever convince me,we need all these yahoos above us.There is supposedly 9 layers of management between the people who actually touch the mail and the top.This is what we should be telling our senators and congressmen.The USPS will always be in a big hole until someone realizes the layers of waste in management and does something about it.IMO

  12. witze says:

    They have never processed the mail

  13. veggie boy says:

    Those that don’t work with their hands are parasites- I think Chairman Mao said that. So are scabs- I said that.

  14. Inspector19 says:

    WOW, since this is free america, speech is one,
    It’s easy to blame and point. You people putting in all the ridiculous bottom feeder
    remarks need to wake up and put on a pair of pants for a change. It’s YOU, the finger pointer that ruined the USPS. Go read a good book for a change, do something for yourself and don’t worry about the top brass. Better yet, go put in a good days work. Pathetic fools, what a waste of Government, YOU!

  15. plant boy says:

    Go away inspector 19 ! you’re probably one of the brass helping to run PO into extinction ! We do not need any more management !! Get it ??

  16. Anthony says:

    It’s for this reason why I will continue to make it my main objective to not burn my route, not take a single shortcut, and f#\k management every time I clock into work. Don’t take any shit from those fools!

  17. Jersey Carrier says:

    Once again we have individuals who never carried a piece of mail in thier lives, never unloaded a trailer at a BMC, never sorted letters, or worked at the window, making decisions on how to save the USPS. It is no wonder this company is in such poor shape. I wonder if Donahoe will watch them continuously and site “time wasting practices”? I am sure they sit at their desks only taking 2 ten minute breaks, a half hour lunch, minimal bathroon breaks, and scan a barcode at least 12 times during the day to show they are actually at their desks! You can’t make this stuff up!

  18. Bongos1 says:

    Tired of all this bullshit and nothing to say because anything you people out there saying nobody cares! So don’t waste your time folks do what you think is right wherever you are or whatever you do.

  19. Retired Hammer says:

    HERE WE GO AGAIN. ANOTHER $400K FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET. CLOSE MORE PLANTS ADD MORE VPs. HEY CONGRESS, ARE YOU ASLEEP WITH YOU HEAD UP YOUR TAIL PIPE.

    If I take an early out from USPS, as a dues paying member of the APWU, will I be able to receive an annuity or lump sum payout from the APWU Retirement Fund for its members?
