Hello, everyone! Threads about tipping are getting a little out of hand and stifling other discussion in the subreddit, so the mod team has decided to limit posting about tipping to this megathread until further notice.
Please remember that service staff being underpaid is due to bosses refusing to pay a living wage, and that service staff are not at fault for participating in a tip-based economy. Comments that place unfair blame on service staff will be actioned accordingly.

I'm a postal worker. I took a 25% pay cut today. Help me spread the word!
Crosspost from r/mildlyinfuriating
Quite possibly more than mildly infuriating. But anyways here goes.
I'm a united stated postal service mail carrier. New rules in place regarding pay has caused my pay to decrease by about 25% starting next Saturday.
My pay is going from roughly $65,000 to $47,000. It's a real shame that in today's economy the postal service is allowing this to happen. I can hardly make an honest living working for the government!
Almost every carrier in my office is also receiving a pay cut. Anywhere from 5-30%. Absolutely no one got an increase in pay.
Something needs to be done about this. Contact your congressman. Talk to your friends and family about this issue. Hardworking honest Americans deserve proper pay!
Edit: Some of you are asking why these cuts are happening. I'm doing the same work on the same route. To quote user @Satsuma_sada
It would be hard to explain to a non-postal worker.
The USPS and the Rural Union disagreed about how to get paid for mail volume. It went into arbitration. An arbitrator chose a new, complicated algorithm based way of determining volume. That algorithm goes into affect this week. People are losing thousands of dollars off their wages and the Postal Service won’t release the math behind the algorithm.
It’s a mess.
Edit 2: people have mentioned striking. Unfortunately postal workers aren't allowed to strike. I'd like to change this.
Edit 3: some people are asking for sources. Check r/usps, ruralinfo.net, or the union website nrlca.org
Edit 4: this is blowing up a bit. Thanks to those who gave me well wishes. I love my job and I love serving my customers. I just want fair pay.

I don't blame them. Seems like the new guidelines are going to make it more dangerous and lower their earning potential.

My boss fired me because he found out I was attempting to help my daughter with an abortion after she was abused, now I'm not sure how how to proceed
Thanks to the people who helped and posted or sent me resources, I was able to resolve the first and most important part of my problem.
I'll be able to buy the medical resource my daughter needs to abort the pregnancy she endured after being abused by those who drugged and took advantage of her.
Someone has also offered to save me the costs of gas by voluntarily offering to drive us the long way to the facility that we need to go to.
Also will be sent tomorrow a weeks worth of food to stock the fridge to lower spending on food as I apply for a new job. However long that takes (hopefully quickly before that's gone).
However, even though my daughter's health has been resolved, I still lost my job due to my terrible bosses political beliefs.
But hopefully I'll get hired sooner than later for a new job. Hopefully one that can help me finally gather enough funds to move out of Alabama. But that's probably likely going to take awhile.
Thanks to everyone posting advice in the comments, and who sent me several resources directly, and legal phone numbers to deal with the false reason made up by my boss for the termination. All because he wanted to force his political beliefs on me.
I'm still going to check into that auntinetwork people recommended. In fact, some appear to have contacted me from that sub including the person volunteering to drive us.
I'm not going to lie and say there isn't water in my eyes, but I am going to lie and say I'm not crying.
I can't thank everyone here enough for helping my family. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
(Thread is resolved for awhile now. just wanted to clarify since some people don't realize this post is an update now)
(Update: We are finishing up at the facility, crisis averted. Last step is to get a new job. Hopefully quickly.)
