Video: Postal Workers trying to keep cool during summer

From WDSU New Orleans

▶ Postal Workers trying to keep cool during summer – YouTube.

    This report is correct but if you have a mounted route the inside of these mail vehicles can get over 150 degrees the Atlanta region office has said to cool off only during approved breaks! We get a thirty minute break for lunch and two ten minute breaks one in the morning and one in the afternoon. These are really not going to keep a mounted carrier safe, but get caught taking a unapproved break and you can get written up and possibly a seven day suspension. If you were to put a small child or a animal in these same situation you would get arrested!
