Shouldn't be a problem for postal workers.
I heard about a mail handler who makes $223K a year :)

I always considered "locality pay" one of those benefits/perks that all feds get.
Except federal postal employees of course.
We're often excluded. The exception to the rule.
Because we're quasi and we're proud!

Most people here are probably too young to remember, but when Nixon died in 1994, the Postal
Service felt it was not covered by a presidential executive order (regarding a paid day of mourning).
The APWU grieved it and won. Thanks to the APWU, all postal employees are now covered.

So change can happen, but usually only through legislation or union intervention.
Often times very difficult and very slow (the APWU grievance took 4 years).

No...it's more of a case where the cities are in Democratic control.

Not just an LA thing.

Are they a RINO?

What is the makeup of the rest of the city leadership body?

High taxes, sanctuary cities and streets covered in human feces.
No wonder they're all leaving for Texas.

But don't give up on California.
My money is on deep-thinking, clear-minded citizens like Leo DiCaprio and Alyssa Milano.
They'll figure it out.

Conservatives love that they can talk about needles and feces recently, but the ultimate fact is that over the last century, the country's most productive and accomplished people have generally congregated in the blue cities.

Apples and oranges.

It doesn't take away from the FACT that the most filthiest disgusting cities tend to be managed and are being destroyed by policies under Democratic control.

But there's hope.

Have a great weekend.

as far as location pay, it could be a thing...for hard to fill military positions, they had location pay...also in the military they 'paid' for housing (BAH), and that amount differed by the zip code of where you were stationed, so SF and NYC were typically the highest, then Alabama/Mississippi usually had the lower end of the scale...

the military had good 'incentive' pays built into the 'base' pay...many years my 'take home' pay was more than my 'base pay' before taxes...sea pay, sea pay kicker, tax free zone, hostile/fire pay, BAH, family separation pay, flight deck pay, search and rescue pay...these are all assorted pays one could get while on deployment...

when I got out, I had been offered a location that had $450 a month 'inventive' pay, that would have also qualified for sea duty (so sea pay, but no kicker), if married I would have gotten BAH for whatever location the family was located, and family sep pay...and I likely would have gotten a 'critical NEC' re-enlistment bonus with a decent multiplier, which would have equated to another $250+ per month of enlistment, a far cry from my $670 per month I got on my previous re-enlistment, as the multiplier goes down significantly with each enlistment, because one you have so many years in and get closer to retirement, they figure you will take less to stay around later in your 'career'
