On both sides of the ocean -- Europe and the U.S., the public trusts postal workers.
A broad international survey by the GFK group said that firefighters are the most trusted profession with a 92 percent approval rating, followed by teachers at 85 percent.
Tied at 81 percent are postal workers, doctors and the armed forces.
That's some good company. Trust is a long-term investment that is difficult to establish and easy to lose. So, for the public to trust their postal employee says plenty.
