U.S. Postal Service in LA busier than holidays, looking to hire more workers

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) — The U.S. Postal Service is busy delivering hundreds of thousands of packages daily, and they are in need of more workers.

The postal distribution center in South Los Angeles is the busiest in the country. More than 2,000 employees work there sorting and processing hundreds of thousands of packages every single day.

“The volume that we’ve experienced here at L.A. is more than any place else in the country. Business is great – we need your help,” said Daniel Hirai with USPS.

“Right now, we’re processing more packages than we did during Christmas, can you believe that? More packages, 40% more. It’s just week after week we’re just experiencing more and more volume, and we need your help.”

Plant manager Daniel Hirai says at the South Los Angeles facility alone, he needs to hire around 500 employees. And hundreds more at other Southern California postal service facilities.
