New Postmaster General Is an Expert Job-Killer
Much of the criticism of new Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has centered on his $2 million in contributions to the Trump campaign and other Republican causes since 2016. DeJoy is in charge of fundraising for the Republican National Convention in Charlotte.
These facts are cause for worry, but postal workers should be even more alarmed at his 35 years’ experience in labor analytics—the art of eliminating as many jobs as possible.
His company has a terrible labor record, rife with red flags including sexual harassment, discrimination, speedup, workplace injuries, excessive use of temps, misclassifying workers as independent contractors, and inadequate sick leave during the current pandemic.
