Washington, DC
Wednesday, February 6, 2013

U.S. Postmaster General and Postal Service CEO Patrick Donahoe announced Wednesday that the Postal Service will end Saturday deliveries in August. The Postal Service expects the change to save around $2 billion per year. During its last fiscal year, the organization ran almost $16 billion in the red, over $11 billion of which was due to funding future retiree health benefits and $2.4 billion was attributable to operating costs.
