Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has a plan to save the beleaguered U.S. Postal Service — and cutting labor costs is a vital part of it, he says, according to The Hill.

Those costs amount to about 80 percent of USPS expenses, so that makes staff reductions urgent, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and other Republicans say.

Issa’s Postal Service bill would permit the agency to dump up to 200,000 staffers in the next few years – workers who already would be eligible for retirement, Issa said at a Heritage Foundation event Monday.

“Do I have some sympathy for the post office? I do. They didn’t create the Internet,” Issa said, adding that reductions still must be made.
