In the article, “Post Office Panic,” I learned that with this Covid-19 pandemic going around, it is delaying deliveries at the postal office. The post office delivers paychecks, medicines, and online products are being delayed due to the current situation we are in. Also, in the past decade alone, 30% of mail agencies have decreased upon their financial outcome. Despite inflated their stamp rate from 33 cents to now 55 cents per stamp, they are still having financial problems. The global pandemic can also result in the presidential election. If voters can’t get in their votes on time due to the post office, a lot can change due to a delay.
I think what is happening with the post office is huge. It is frustrating that important incoming mail is being delayed to a crisis such as Covid-19. This can delay any product you have recently purchased and with the Presidential election in November. It can change the number of votes a person running for office receives.
How can post office troubles be solved?
