Does anyone know if there is a US Postal Service strike? Someone was telling me there was, and I couldn't find anything online about it.

We got mail today, so unless they got some experienced back up workers I will have to say no strike for the USPS

I have not heard of anything and I got mail, so I would say no. Besides do we really need another reason for mail to go even slower?

Well I was thinking maybe they meant a section of the USPS? Like... I do not... the international team/dept., etc.? Because I got mail too (although just crappy ads), but i've been waiting for an international package, and the person who sent it told me that our mail service had a strike. They must be wrong though.

Could be something thats happening overseas. I know Canada almost had a mail strike but it was cancelled and never happened..

does mail usually got direct from one country to another, or does it go through many?

It depends. Sometimes it takes less than a week and other times it can be 3 weeks.
