Small businesses with fewer than 10 employees rely on the Postal Service more than any other delivery service due to its:
- Equitable pricing
- Reach and accessibility
Undermining this valuable service through cost-cutting measures and unexpected rate hikes will cause self-inflicted economic wounds the government must avoid during a deep and damaging recession.
- The new postmaster general should halt and reverse harmful cost-cutting measures
- The Senate must follow suit and pass the House of Representative’s legislation repealing postal changes and investing $25 billion in the agency
We must keep the Postal Service strong and avoid placing more challenges in front of small business owners working hard to survive this once-in-a-generation crisis.
