The Decline Of Mail:
One of our oldest traditions is in danger of disappearing due to advancements of communication technology. If citizens in West Virginia and elsewhere throughout the United States do not make some changes over the coming years we may see a drastic reduction in the number of USPS outlets stores throughout the United States. The postal service that we so dearly love is on the decline and if it continues on this path we may have to relegate it to the dustbin of history.
Since 2010 the number of pieces of mail has declined from a staggering 170.7 billion letters per year to 154.2 billion in 2016, though the number of registered delivery points or addresses has increased from 150.9 million to 154.2 million during the same period it has done little to slow the decline. If the number of packages continues to decline we may witness a downsizing of postal services throughout the country.
The United States Postal Service started actively trying to increase the number of pieces of mail that people send and receive but without the support of the people there is little that USPS can do by themselves.
One of the most alarming statistic that shows the decline of mail throughout the country is from 2010 where the USPS employed 583,908 men and women to bring you your mail, in the year 2016 the number has decreased to 493,381 employees.
