New Year, New Rates
At an Apple Computer event last month, we were told, "e-mail is dead." While we contemplate that one and go sign into MySpace for our "New Messages," it was brought to our attention that 37-cent stamps are dead too. Next week, 39 is the new 37.
Considering that Netflix alone pays for 2,100 jobs in the postal service workforce, we thought the hike to be unnecessary. But then again, out of 700,000 employees, that is less than one percent.
When all is said and done on January 8th, the postcard rate will also increase a penny to a total of 24 cents.
