USPS was founded in the year 1971. The organisation has been active for over 48 years now. The organisation has its origins back in the year 1775 when Benjamin Franklin was appointed as the first postmaster, during the rule of the Second Continental Congress. The primary post office department was created due to the postal service of Benjamin Franklin, in the year 1971. The organisation was transformed into its current state, due to the Postal Reorganization Act. The main reason for the establishment of the USPS was because of the low wages and the poor working conditions experienced by the postal workers in New York City. This allowed the workers to initiate a strike against the USA Government. The attack had gained the support of over 210,000 USA Post Office Department workers, and therefore the postal act was signed by the president Richard Nixon, in the year 1970. During the 1980s, the organisation had stopped receiving taxpayer money.
During the year 2006, the organisation had experienced its peak volume. But after the year 2006, the revenues of the company had dropped sharply mainly due to a recession influenced decline, in the total amount of mail being sent and received as well.
