Lexington’s Paul Steidler is quoted in a Slate article about Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and why DeJoy will likely stay in his position during the Biden administration.
“The system is somewhat designed for this. The Postal Service is supposed to be immune from political pressures, or at least daily political pressures,” said Steidler. Steidler also contends that Democrats should work with and compromise with DeJoy to enact much-needed reforms at the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).
But Steidler does not think that DeJoy will try to reinstate the highly contested cost-cutting changes he initially put forth at USPS this summer, including overtime cuts.
“That’s just a nonstarter. That would be a disaster politically for him to go there,” said Steidler. “You still have Democrats in control of the House, and they’d call him up [for a hearing] the next day if he attempted to do that again.”
