    In this article a key item was overlooked. In the Inspection Service letter it stated the carrier is a CCA (City Carrier Associate), most are not career employees, are paid less, minimal benefits and were hired by the USPS to carry mail. Many regular career routes are left empty and filled with multiple CCA’s, the incidence in many cases are disgruntled CCA’s having to do everything and getting paid 1/2. Not defending, throwing mail out is not EVER acceptable. In my office 9 FT career carriers retired and were replaced with 16 CCA’s, misdeliveries have gone up, more packages gone missing , mail being returned to sender because they do not know their customers, mail being brought back because they don’t know the routes and so much more. USPS is removing the last S “Service” to cut career employment and become another low wage place to work part time.
