Competition Between UPS, FedEx, and USPS
An 11 page paper discussing whether competition from private-sector delivery services such as Federal Express and UPS adversely affects the ability of the US Postal Service to maximize profits. Priority Mail and Express Mail are add-on services of the USPS, but the primary business of private-sector delivery services such as Federal Express and UPS. Certainly the USPS would carry much greater volumes of pieces applicable to the category if private-sector services did not exist, but it is doubtful that competition in the category has been highly significant in preventing the USPS from maximizing profit. Prohibited by law from carrying any profit at all, the USPS perhaps could reduce rates for other services or at least hold them steady without its private-sector competition, but it still would not be allowed to post any significant and ongoing profits from operations. The paper includes one chart and one table. Bibliography lists 13 sources.
Job Satisfaction and Various Contributing Factors
An 18 page research paper investigating positive factors of job satisfaction among public-sector administrators. Job satisfaction typically has been seen as being uniform among workers, whether those workers are employed in the public or private sectors. Recent research indicates that satisfaction factors vary between the sectors, however. Findings of this research indicate that in addition, those factors also vary between levels of responsibility in the public sector. Also, other issues not related to actual job duties can affect job satisfaction, such as the ability to more comfortably combine work and family life. There were time constraints on this work; the paper recommends that the research methods be modified in the future in order to allow more time for respondents' to participate and that public-service agencies simply ask their employees what would make their work lives both easier and more rewarding so that conditions can better be tailored to the needs of employees of individual government agencies. Bibliography lists 39 sources.
