The Postal Service saw its highest career employee complement — 797,795 employees — in 1999. Since that time, through attrition, the complement level has decreased to 583,000 employees (as of Dec. 31, 2010) and delivery points have increased by 17 million nationwide, from 134 million to 151 million in the same timeframe.
That's pretty good, isn't it? Increasing delivery points while reducing employees. Do you think the public realizes this? Any other thoughts on this fact?
