  1. This is just the start. Put yourself as an employee here and you know when those kids get a little older FMLA will be used for this, that and every other excuse they can come up with. And who will have to cover their absence? You will. FMLA has protected the sick lame and lazy for years and for those who actually need the leave it won’t be there when they do. 3 kids should be enough and 4 is maximum.

  2. Get out while you can. The end is coming. Incompetance
    eventually reaches a point of no return. These issues are
    just the tip of the iceberg. The end of the PO as we know it
    is over. Eventually someone is going to figure out what
    really goes on and breaks it up.

  3. You can’t blame the management here in Scranton.. Their job is hard enough to start with! They’re the cream of the crop.

  4. since 1973 the Postal service has treated it’s low life employees like dirt. Endless stories on how management has tried to beat people down. Though when management does wrong, they are promoted! Our Prickmaster once tried to place a carrier up for removal because she came down with frostbite. We where forced to go out in -21 degree weather. Now if someone in management came down with frostbite, would they be place up for removal? NO they would become higher level!

  5. Nothing new from the Postal Service.Glad the pregnant woman sued for the injustice.Senator Tesser is correct in his judgement that the Postal Service has FAULTY managers. With oversight this favoritism ,appointing incompetent managers by who they know ,will end,but i doubt it,too widespread.
