and business correspondence of the people.” In furtherance of this mission, the Postal Service and its more than 500,000 clerks, letter carriers, mail handlers, and other employees deliver the mail to over 157 million residential and business customers
six days a week nationwide. Given the effectiveness of the Postal Service in fulfilling its critical public service mission, it is not surprising that the American people have consistently ranked the Postal Service as our most trusted government agency.
