-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
WITH CONGRESS DEBATING LEGISLATION THAT COULD DRASTICALLY OVERHAUL THE U-S POSTAL SERVICE, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LETTER CARRIERS PRESIDENT, FREDRIC ROLANDO, SAYS SUCH A SHAKEUP WOULD COST JOBS IN MANY OTHER INDUSTRIES--AND WOULD HARM AMERICA'S OVERALL-ECONOMY...

(ROLANDO):
"THE POSTAL SERVICE IS THE CORNERSTONE OF THE NATION'S MAILING-INDUSTRY--WHICH REPRESENTS ONE-POINT-THREE-TRILLION DOLLARS, EACH YEAR, AND SUPPORTS ABOUT NINE-MILLION AMERICAN-JOBS IN SUCH FIELDS AS DIRECT-MAIL, PRINTING, CATALOG-PRODUCTION, PAPER-MANUFACTURING, AND FINANCIAL-SERVICES.  IN ADDITION, BECAUSE AMERICA'S MAIL-SYSTEM IS THE LEAST-EXPENSIVE AND MOST-EFFICIENT IN THE INDUSTRIALIZED-WORLD, IT PROVIDES CRITICAL-SERVICES TO OUR SMALL-BUSINESSES--WHICH PRODUCE TWO-THIRDS OF ALL NEW-JOBS.  DISMANTLING THE POSTAL SERVICE WOULD THREATEN EXISTING-JOBS, AND HARM EFFORTS TO CREATE JOBS IN THE FUTURE--JUST WHAT AMERICA DOESN'T NEED NOW.
