DeJoy hired four people who worked for his private businesses to work at USPS

United States Postal Service Postmaster General Louis DeJoy hired four people who previously worked for his private businesses to work with him at USPS in June, according to documents obtained by American Oversight through FOIA request and viewed by CNN.

DeJoy began working as postmaster general on June 15. In the following two weeks, he brought on four people who had previously worked at his companies to be his chief of staff, executive administrator and senior executive advisers at USPS. The documents also show that DeJoy’s base salary as postmaster general is $303,460.

He hired Patrick Fiorentino and Kelly Abney to be senior executive advisers starting on June 27. Abney and Fiorentino both previously worked at XPO Logistics, the company DeJoy served on the Board of Directors for after it acquired his own company, New Breed Logistics, in 2014. Abney was hired with a base salary of $195,000, while Fiorentino was hired with a base salary of $180,000, according to the documents.

Postal service could save $1,000,000 by doing away with these 5 jobs. But it’s the Postal workers fault for Postal Service problems. Give me a break !

I totally agree. As someone who has observed/worked n privitazation, it costs more, not performed well, employees work harder less pay. No good but trumpeter who is king. He’s a minion in his court. VOTE

WHY are you blaming the regular postal workers? The slow down is completely due to Dejoy and Trump. Some postal workers even took the chance to go against the “rules” and resurrected some of the sorting machines. Plus they cannot work overtime. Why are you so heartless toward the poor postal workers struggling to do their jobs in the crippling of their jobs thanks to Dejoy. Plus many postal workers are vets. Show some respect.

That’s the only thing management knows how to do, Dee, is to blame the workers and not themselves.

This isn’t a surprise as he is headed towards privatization and pension reform so why not get the buddies a job to help.

He wants to cut cost at the USPS, REALLY? Then why did he hire all his cronies with those ridiculous salaries. New positions at that!

Thank you
