A few hours later Fedex arrived followed by UPS showed up with the larger packages. And here I was just getting used to Fedex delivering on Saturdays.
USPS wants to stop mail delivery on Saturday, but keep package delivery because that's still profitable for them. They are adding Sunday package delivery because that's profitable too. It's only Saturday MAIL delivery they want to stop because it's losing money.

Nope... no overtime, at least according to the USPS guy who delivered my amazon package today.

Thank you for clarifying that. This is a separate contract for USPS. It has nothing to do with their Saturday mail delivery. This may confuse some people.
