Empty trucks, falsified records: How Louis DeJoy’s changes at the Postal Service brought chaos

The stricter deadlines sparked far less public outcry than the removal of more than 700 high-speed sorting machines at mail processing facilities around the country — but they were far more disruptive to the U.S. mail system, according to a Times investigation.

Weeks-long delays began to ripple through a system already reeling from COVID-19 absences and a surge in package delivery during the pandemic, shaking Americans’ faith in one of the country’s most popular services and raising concerns about how the Postal Service will handle mail-in ballots in November.

That hasn’t changed. Management has been falsifying documents for years. No different at our place. Lie, lie and more lies.

Exactly most postal numbers are made up to look good on paper.

Local management still falsifies everything at our office to make themselves look good while screwing the workers.

Don’t blame him for the liars and cheaters honesty and integrity need to come back they are robbing the post office blind follow the bonus trail

Management always has and will manipulate everything they can…unfortunate
