theodp writes “Online retailer giant Amazon.com has come out against a US Postal Service proposal to end Saturday service, part of efforts to address the USPS budget deficit. ‘Amazon’s customers have come to appreciate and expect Saturday delivery,’ explained Amazon VP Paul Misener. ‘If the five-day delivery proposal is not withdrawn,’ he added, ‘we ask that Congress ensure that Saturday delivery be maintained.’ In the past, Amazon has argued that it should not have to help support public services in states in which it has no physical presence.” The article adds, “Interestingly, online DVD service Netflix is backing the plan to end Saturday mail delivery, arguing that a ‘well functioning’ Postal Service is more important than ‘maintaining current delivery frequency.’”
