For many, a seasonal role can be the start of an exciting career with the Postal Service.”

The Postal Service is an equal opportunity employer offering a fast-paced, rewarding work environment with competitive compensation packages, on-the-job training and opportunities for advancement.

 

In addition to hiring, the Postal Service is preparing for the higher delivery demands of the 2021 holiday peak season by leasing millions of additional square feet of mail and package sortation facilities and installing new processing equipment to accommodate higher mail and package volumes.

 

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.

Those over 65 who have received two Pfizer shots are eligible for the boosters, along with other high risk populations.       The CDC is releasing several studies showing that enforcing mask-wearing in schools helps reduce the spread of COVID-19. One of the studies, which looked at one-thousand schools nationwide, showed 113 of the 191 COVID outbreaks that occurred between mid-July through August were in schools that did not enforce mask mandates. It's a hot button issue in several states including Texas, Florida and Arizona, which have tried to bar school districts from enforcing mask policies.       The man who shot President Ronald Reagan 40 years ago is winning back his eventual freedom.
