When one mail processing plant is closed, the mail from the area it formerly served is shipped to another mail processing plant, which may be several miles away, to be sorted, resulting in work overload at that plant and delays in delivery. Postmaster General Patrick F. Donahoe, whose salary is second only to that of President Obama, has proposed closing 229 processing plants nationally by 2014, with devastating consequences to the integrity of the network. This sequence of mail delivery trucks waiting to be unloaded was filmed over a roughly 30 minute consecutive period on one day. It has been minimally edited. For commentary and analysis of the postal crisis and the impact of plant closings, please see previous post on this channel or at mobilebroadcastnews/Newsroom/Squaring. Thank you.
