One Nebraska Postmaster wrote me about increasing volume.
Here's what she had to say:
"Yes, I think the postage increase is too high. What happened to the supply and demand? We can't make that work with out both of those things out there. We need to create that situation. Volume is better.
What would happen if the Post Office had a half price sale? Every letter mailed on the 13th of the month could be mailed for half price. That would create some volume. Yes, people would send all the mail on the 13th, but so what. It doesn't hurt us to work a little harder once in a while."
What do you think about this idea? Comment here.
