    Sounds like a good idea as long as I get paid the $27.44 /hr I’m currently getting as an active letter carrier.

    Else, let them hire and spend extra time and money training someone new for a 4-week job. It would probably be cheaper in the long run and better service to customers.

    GOOD LUCK……In 25 yrs as a carrier, I’ve seen several dozen colleagues retire……some have found other jobs, but NONE have ever expressed a desire to come back to what they retired from! At least unlike the military, their is no recall.

    Ooops! I was in a hurry. I typed this up on break. What I meant to say was It would probably be cheaper in the long run and better service to customers IF they hired experienced carriers at top pay for a 4-week job so they wouldn’t have to train new hires that would probably make a mess of things.

    Puleeze! So I can go back and do pieces in the worst slum areas of Nashua, NH? I don’t think so!
