I've worked as a postie for 24 years. If the older posties go thats going to leave the pension fund a bit sad. Lets say 500 posties at 100k each. Just
thought. Have to admit volumes are nothing like the 85-95 era back then it was quite a struggle to get it all sorted and delivered. Now it's a walk in the park, even with the extra work. Good luck everyone.

When businesses face competition they don't drop services and then make the remaining services more expensive. To survive they improve the product (whatever happened to fast post?) and keep the prices low to compete. If the government gets its way, services will be dropped, people will lose their jobs, but prices will not be cut. In fact, they will most likely go up. Other countries are finding ways to get mail services moving again despsite technology, but Key just sees another way of slashing costs and screwing the NZ public once again. Oh, if we only had an opposition party!

We receive mail every day the kids look forward to it but the point is if we get mail every day there must still be enough business to keep the service operating daily and yes some of those items receive are time sensitive.

To be perfectly frank I had assumed they had reduced to 3 days several years ago.
