USPS Cuts Saturday Mail

By Norman Chan

Packages will continue to be delivered on Saturday.

It's finally come to this. This morning, the United States Postal Service announced that it will cease basic first-class mail delivery on Saturdays, but continue to service package shipments and deliveries six days a week. This cost-cutting move, which will begin the week of August 5th, is expected to save the floundering postal service $2 billion a year. Last year, the USPS operated at a net loss of $15.9 billion.
