POSTAL WORKERS

Through "rain or snow or sleet or hail," postal workers bring the mail. Have you heard this before? A postal worker's job is to deliver mail. A postal worker is the one who works for a post office, such as a mail carrier. A mail carrier, mailman, mailwoman, postal carrier, postman, postwoman, or letter carrier (in American English), sometimes colloquially known as a postie (in Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, and other parts of the United Kingdom), is an employee of a post office or postal service, who delivers mail and parcel post to residences and businesses. The term "mail carrier" came to be used as a gender-neutral substitute for "mailman" soon after women began performing the job.

In the United States, the official label for a mail carrier is "letter carrier". The US Postal Service employs around 584,000 people. The bulk of these work as service clerks, mail sorters, mail carriers.

Service Clerks sell stamps and postage, help people pick up packages and assist with other services. Mail Sorters physically sort the mail to go to the correct place. As automation has become more common, some of these people now operate the sorting machines. Mail Carriers deliver the mail. In densely populated areas this is done on foot. In urban areas the carriers often use a mail truck and in rural areas carriers drive their own vehicles. Most postal workers in the US make between $36,000 and $43,000 per year.

A postmaster is the head of an individual post office. When a postmaster is responsible for the entire mail distribution organization (usually sponsored by a national government), the title of Postmaster General is commonly used. Responsibilities of a postmaster typically include management of a centralized mail distribution facility, establishment of letter carrier routes, supervision of letter carriers and clerks, and enforcement of the organization's rules and procedures.
