I would hope time sensitive things would be labeled as packages and be delivered.

I DO think it's crappy of Congress to screw the USPS and postal workers. It's planned failure !!
And the big reason is to attack Unions. It's FUBAR ! mad

Your point about many not being hurt, but many will be is well taken. The USPS says they won;t have to cut people but they will cut OT. That's good IF they can do it (no layoffs), but I'm sure many relied on the OT to make ends meet. and you're right the whole damm thing could have been easily avoided !
