Chapter Eight discusses the damage done by the 2006 Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) leading to the 2009 financial crisis of the USPS, and concludes by examining connections between that crisis and the 1970 strike. The chapter further argues that the financial crisis of 2009 that became chronic was politically manufactured by the PAEA. It also surveys the postal labor-consumer coalitions formed to rectify attacks on universal postal service, including cutbacks, downsizing, outsourcing, and privatization efforts.
