Producer Dan Collison explores what it's like to work at the post office, the largest civilian employer in the country. He spends a 'typical day' with a letter carrier in San Mateo, California who's worked for the post office for almost twenty years. He also visits Royal Oak, Michigan, scene of the latest in a series of shooting incidents involving postal workers and former postal workers who target their supervisors. Some see the violence as an outgrowth of stress and hardline management at the post office, others as a reflection of society in general. And he looks at the move toward automation at the post office -- what that means for workers and the future of the postal service.
