Postal Union

US under President Trump, is threatening to leave the 144-year-old Universal Postal Union. The postal (stamp)  rate that was made a long time ago, puts US in disadvantage when Chinese economy began to surge. A shipper in China pays $2 while an American pays $10 to move a package or letter. The old organization has 192 member states, not sure one country one vote is a good thing. But is there a better way to make matter fairer within the organization?

This is finally coming to light – shows one part why the clothes from China can reach us so inexpensively.
