The post office is a critical part of life for millions of Americans and due to a number of budget cuts the government was planning to shut many of them down this year. Fortunately for millions of people this problem has now been resolved as the U.S. Senate has officially voted to slow down the rate at which the post offices will be closing.
Another major benefit of keeping thousands of post offices open longer or indefinitely is that thousands of people will be able to keep their jobs for a while longer, and this is obviously great news. Keeping jobs and keeping an efficient postal service were two of the main goals of keeping the post offices open and Congress has clearly managed to do this as many analysts are incredibly pleased with the results.
The official list on which post offices while remain open and how long they will remain open is still under determination but it is definitely a great step. Saving thousands of jobs while still managing to keep the services open that millions of Americans depend on is absolutely amazing news all around. Fortunately it will definitely impact thousands of people in a number of ways so it is great news. The government is expected to announce their final decision on which post offices are going to remain open sometime in the next few months though it may take a while to officially release the information.
