  • In response to Steve Haskell's Sept. 3 letter, "Health care act is set to go," there are always two sides to every story, although I will agree with him that "it matters a lot."

  • In response to Steve Haskell's Sept. 3 letter, "Health care act is set to go," there are always two sides to every story, although I will agree with him that "it matters a lot."
    I work for the U.S. Postal Service, and two years ago they implemented a new workforce of folks who have some of our benefits, but not all. These new workers are called PSEs (Postal Support Employees). The USPS also thought it mattered a lot, and decided it did not want to jump on the health care act bandwagon, so it has cut back all the PSEs to a 30-hour work week.
    These people will now be working up to 10 hours less weekly, and suffering the pay loss, and the USPS doesn't have to pay for health benefits. I will also be letting Greg Walden know how this affects postal employees.
    This is the other side of the story. As a registered independent, I am not as sure as Mr. Haskell is as to who is "spreading fear and bad information." — Karen Gordon, Central Point
