US Postal Service to offer employee buyouts
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The U.S. Postal Service plans to offer employee buyouts, hoping to eliminate about 7,500 administrative and executive jobs.
The Postal Service lost $8.5 billion last year.
It's hoping the $20,000 buyouts for veteran workers, plus the closure of seven district offices, will save $750 million a year.
The Postal Service has already asked Congress to let it end Saturday delivery, but an independent commission says savings from that would not be as much as previously thought.
