Americans love a man, or woman, in uniform. Even in the postal world. In fact, many folks would like all postal workers to have uniforms.
Five years ago we ran a blog on rural letter carriers and whether they should wear a uniform, or at least a uniformed shirt – they currently aren’t required. Given that rural routes are increasingly suburban and rural carriers more visible to the public and rural letter carriers serve as something of a post office on wheels, it seemed a logical question to ask.
