  1. Maybe now we’ll get rid of the “Welfare State” mentality that so many Postal Employees have. Perhaps we’ll appreciate our job when they begin to dissolve it.

  2. President Dump won’t be happy till everyone works for free, except his lackeys that are appointed to high jobs. In America all that is needed are guns, god, and sports. Nothing more.

  3. Bring back the great Carvin’ Marvin he was the only one who knew that there are toooooo many chiefs and not enough Indians

  4. If I were going to be President, and a real Democrat, not a GOP-lite Wall Street minion, I’d fire the entire BOG immediately and get members who are willing to serve the public and workers instead of a rubber stamping jerk off that really has nothing to do with USPS management.
    Of course, Brennan would be packing her bags, and so would a lot of the weasels who are hell bent on destroying the USPS. I could accomplish that by getting a PMG who is a friend to labor, would expect and remove anybody under this person who continued to embezzle funds, willfully ignore labor agreements or fail to hire adequate CAREER employees. It’s not that fictional. In the 1980’s, the PMG was Anthony Frank, who was a great friend of all the USPS, worked very well with the unions, and emphasized good public service and high standards. Craft people actually got periodical voluntary step increases when they did well – I topped out at barely 10 years as did several other good workers in my office because we were hard working, reliable, honest, and had a great relationship with customers. Yes, the work was much heavier, but you got recognition and a sense of doing something honorable for your job. I carried that attitude my whole career, but it is all but extinct except with carriers nearing retirement and the types who work hard because they have a sense of responsibility and believe in doing their best. It’s those workers who keep the USPS alive, not the idiot upper level managers who for the most part were shitty dishonest snitches as craft people, and horrifying suck ups. As with every general rule there are exceptions, and I want to make that point because there are some in management I consider my friends and are good people trying to do the right thing in an impossible situation. But the rest would be busted back to craft, fired or investigated for embezzlement and other illegal activities under the rule of whomever I made PMG or that person would be out on their ear, too. But we, the retirees and craft have no real say so, and sadly the NALC is not the organization they used to be, either.
