Question: What do you think of the recent news that the U.S. Postal Service plans to stop delivering mail on Saturdays starting this summer?



"It's going to create problems: SSI checks and welfare checks sometimes come on Saturdays. Some legal notices are delivered on Saturdays, like notices from the hospital. Then you have to wait until Monday or Tuesdayand things might get too busy." –Roberto Feliciano, Canarsie "It's going to create problems: SSI checks and welfare checks sometimes come on Saturdays.

"That means the postal workers who work on Saturday will lose pay. And especially in this economy, they need their pay. For Saturday work, you get differential pay. So it's really bad. Plus, workers will have to do extra work the following week." –Crystal Pipkin, Canarsie "That means the postal workers who work on Saturday will lose pay.

"Just doesn't catch my attention. As long as I get my important stuff during the week, then no big deal." –Brandon Rodriguez, Canarsie "Just doesn't catch my attention. As long as I get my important stuff during the week, then no big deal." –Brandon Rodriguez, Canarsie

"We already get lousy service. That's going to make it even more detrimental. I think people with all night businesses will be especially affected because they can't ship out their products on Saturdays." –Jessica Melendez, Canarsie "We already get lousy service.
