“I don’t think they have any regards for safety,” former USPS employee Sigourdney Tabb said.

Tabb started her career as a mail carrier with the USPS in December 2018, at the 10509 Patterson Road location in Henrico County.

“Getting an offer at the post office, you think you`re set for life,” she said.

Tabb said she thought the job would safely take her into retirement, but two months after she started she quit because she said she wasn’t getting paid.
