There is a ton of debt that needs to be made up in the United States Post Office (USPS) and this Friday is the beginning of some rate hikes and some later delivery times. It's part of a ten-year plan to try and put a dent into the one hundred sixty billion dollar debt they are facing.
It'll cost more to mail those holiday packages this year. For the first time, the U.S. Postal Service is implementing a holiday surcharge on packages as more people shop and ship online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It may seem like common sense to most, but some people (Andy) don't know how to send mail to another country, even if it is to our neighbors in the North. Thank goodness for our resident Canadian Polly.
