The U.S. Postal Service is expected to announce major cuts in mail service by early next spring that would affect first-class mail delivery. Roughly one half of the mail-processing centers across the country will be closing, which will turn next-day delivery of first-class mail into two or three days. Nearly 100,000 employees could be losing their jobs to save the U.S. Postal Service from bankruptcy. On January 22nd, the price of a first-class stamp will go up by one cent to 45 cents.
