The U.S. Postal Service announced on Monday that they are going try to to reduce the mail delivery days from six days to five days a week, cutting out Saturday.
The proposal was announced, due to the recent financial troubles that the Postal Service has gone through. Since 2007, the Postal Service has lost money every year because of the economic downfall that the nation has faced, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Post Master General John Potter will submit the proposal to the Postal Regulatory Commission by the end of the month to seek approval to reduce the mail delivery days starting in 2011, according to USA Today.
If the proposal is approved, the Postal Service will save $3 billion a year, according to The Wall Street Journal.
"We can right this ship," Potter said to reporters on Monday, according to The Wall Street Journal.
