Video: San Jose Mailman Who Dumped Mail in Trash Resigns

A United States Postal Service employee has resigned after someone said they spotted him throwing a pile of mail in a dumpster in San Jose.

Gus Ruiz, a spokesman for the USPS San Jose area, said the employee was new on the job and wanted to lighten his load.

"It’s an anomaly," Ruiz said.

USPS employees have been retracing the route of a new hire and searching dumpsters after he was seen lightening his load by tossing envelops in the trash outside a business along Lincoln Avenue, in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood.

    ANOMALY is getting to be the new buzz word for postal management to use when explaining the actions of their new mail carriers. After a while it will be business as usual unless you get caught. When will they ever police themselves?

    Another day,another CCA dumping or throwing mail,management is getting what they pay for.

    Hiring people off the street and giving them very little training and sending them out to deliver 10 hrs. worth of mail and telling them to be done in 8 hrs. is not an anomaly.These new hires are making around $16 an hour,which is good money but management takes advantage of them every chance they get.As more and more career carriers retire you can expect more of these situations to occur.

    In a recent service talk the supervisor had to read aloud, he had to ask someone standing next to him how to pronounce the word and we then had to have a discussion to explain to him what it meant.
