New York (CNN Business)Delays in mail delivered by the United States Postal Service have impacted veterans waiting to receive their medication and threatened mail-in voting in November. They’re also hurting America’s small businesses.
The Postal Service has tried to reduce costs in recent months with changes such as cutting staff hours and eliminating overtime pay. The moves have resulted in mail delays around the country. President Donald Trump has also said he opposes much-needed funding for the agency because he doesn’t want to see it used for mail-in voting in the November elections.
The delays have been devastating to small businesses that have come to rely on the post office to get their products to consumers.
