They have been locked in a row over pay and modernisation.

US Postal Service:

555,000,000 daily mail delivered
656,000 employees
= 848 delivered items per employee in US Postal Service


UK Mail:

75,000,000 daily mail delivered
176,000 employees
= 426 delivered items per employee in UK Royal Mail

Assuming those stats are accurate


I would ask every RM Employee, economies of scale aside, why is the US Postal service twice as efficient as the RM?
