One reader sent me this note. "I want to go on record and volunteer a cut of $.50 an hour if means we can save the Postal Service and my job."
The reader goes on to say that if all 600,000 plus employees did that over the course of a year, that would add up to a bunch of zeroes. And there are other things, like vacation days that some might be willing to sacrifice.
Of course, many of our benefits are the same ones given to all federal employees, so that may not even be possible. And pay and other benefits have been won throughout the years through negotiations at the table. So, this may not be realistic.
But it's a good question worth discussing. What you give up, if anything? Comment here.
