Let's face it, the casual employment of posties has been a disaster. I still get the wrong mail, mail screwed up, opened mail etc. and it's no big deal. But a few years ago it was common for my post and parcels to have been opened and thieved from. I'm not sure how they've put a stop to that, but I'm glad they have.

The post is something that we all have to rely on. So aggressive cost cutting, low wages and zero job security for posties was obviously a pretty stupid idea. It's another example that "free market" principles don't automatically work everywhere!
