That’s entirely to high tech. In fact all they are actually doing is:
1: Removing mail boxes, seemingly selectively from melanic neighborhoods.
2: Removing automatic sorting machinery, thus requiring employees to hand-sort.
3: Cutting overtime and not hiring to fill existing slots (nor to do the sorting mentioned in point 2).
Of course all this derives from some few years ago when the GOP Senate and House got a law passed that makes them fund their pension plan 30 years in advance of need… thus turning a “neither red-ink nor black” operation into one that appears to be losing money at a rapid pace… setting up the current Postmaster General to be able to claim that cutting costs is absolutely critical.
