A woman walks into a post office which is due to close in Los Angeles, California January 30, 2012. The Postal Service, which relies on the sales of stamps and other products rather than taxpayer funding, has limited alternatives for shoring up its finances. The agency says it needs to reduce its operating expenses and has outlined an aggressive plan that would involve closing post offices and processing facilities, renegotiating labor contracts and eliminating thousands of jobs, ending Saturday mail delivery, and restructuring its health and retirement programs.
