WEB Notes: This is what we call a tax increase. Call it a “fee” if it makes you sleep better at night, but this is a government entity. It is interesting how UPS is able to deliver Amazon packages just fine.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday targeted online retailer Amazon(AMZN.O) in a call for the country’s postal service to raise prices of shipments in order to recoup costs.
“Why is the United States Post Office, which is losing many billions of dollars a year, while charging Amazon and others so little to deliver their packages, making Amazon richer and the Post Office dumber and poorer? Should be charging MUCH MORE!” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
