Postal Service Gouging Retailers

Since I've heard similar complaints from other retailers, I now realize there is a determined effort by the US Postal Service to put the squeeze on small businesses using the USPS for shipping. I've found that the USPS has deployed an extra level of scrutiny on items shipped with postage applied. Clearly, the USPS union views as a threat to Federal workers, since waiting in line for "high touch" customer service at the post office is no longer necessary for those using the discounted rates through My local office has even been adding "postage due" notices on packages sent to customers. The USPS is clearly desperate for cash, and they are trying to gouge small businesses to stay afloat financially. The bottom line...the USPS is effectively doubling our shipping expenses, and we have little choice but to comply in order to keep them off our back (and not "lose" our shipments). We will do our best to minimize the impact of shipping expense increases on our customers...
