Vegas resident responds to slowdown in USPS mail delivery


LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – On October 1, the United States Postal Service decided to slow mail delivery to cut costs.

Paul Steidler, principal researcher at the Lexington Institute, says the three-day delivery standard for first-class mail will now take five days or more.

Steidler says the USPS has decided to stop using planes and only delivers ground mail. He says the longer the distance, the longer the wait will be for recipients. He says in-state delivery shouldn’t be affected as much by these changes.

“To act in this matter about something that is very important to the American people that only the Postal Service can deliver the mail in is a terrible disservice, and it is very painful and it causes a lot of anxiety there. “said Steidler. .

He says many people across the country are negatively affected by this change. Tony Kretler, a Las Vegas, had to pay $ 100 late fees because of the delay.

“I have a good credit rating; I plan to keep it going and now the system is trying to fuck me and everyone else because they don’t care, ”Kretler says.

He relies heavily on USPS to make his bill payments. He says he always sends his payments on time and has a great credit history. When it comes to using online services, he says he has the knowledge of a second grader and prefers to use the traditional method.

“They don’t care and that’s the problem in this country and people don’t seem to care, it’s me, it’s for me, and you forget it’s not the right way to live This is not how this country was built, it was not the way it was designed, ”Kretler said.

Paul Steidler recommended that as the holiday season approaches, make sure you get your mail out with enough time in advance to ensure your gifts and cards arrive on time.
