USPS: Some Interesting Statistics

We spotted some interesting statistics on the US postal service today:

1. Total mail volume decreased 20 percent from 2006 to 2010.
2. With 571,566 full-time workers, the USPS is the country’s second-largest civilian employer after Wal-Mart.
3. It operates 31,871 post offices, more than the combined domestic retail outlets of Wal-Mart, Starbucks and McDonald’s.
80 percent of the USPS budget goes to salaries and benefits.
4. It’s been losing money since 2006, including nearly $20 billion since 2007.
5. The agency is now almost $15 billion in debt. Unless the government steps in, it will default on $5.5 billion of retiree health-care costs in September. By October it will reach its legal debt limit, and by the end of the year, the USPS will be out of cash — insolvent and unable to operate.

Lets help each other, get to know each other & SHARE!

For any of my followers (& those who are not), if you have a business that you would like to share about, now is the time.  I am dedicating Sundays to “Sharing” and “Networking” with other Small Businesses.  At the end of the day, I will share all responses with each of my social networks.  AND, if everyone who shares would also do the same, our potential is wide, far & unlimited.

The enchiridion of “Life’s Philosophy”…

I’ve come to the conclusion that if I had the chance to sit idle on this pier, I would have to bring out the enchiridion of “Life’s Philosophy”. Such a wonderful photograph gives off vibes of intellect!

enchiridion \ en-kahy-RID-ee-uhn \, noun;
1. A handbook; manual.

Origin: Enchiridion stems from the Greek root cheir meaning “hand”. The prefix en- means “within”, so the noun means “in the hand”. The suffix -idion denotes a diminutive form of another word.
