I could go on (and I've not listed the dicriminations against the deaf) but unless you were there you can't understand. All postal workers earn every penny of their benefits, nothing was giving to them. They are not laughing their way to the bank but suffering in their retirement from many ills. I know because I suffer and get with others and hear about their sufferings.
Are you saying this was your experience??? If so, it looks like some labor laws were broken. But a smart guy like you would have known better, right?
