mail system.

>> Saturday, June 25, 2011

so now we're headed into day 7 of the canada post strike.  and while it hasn't affected my personal life so much (we get mostly direct mail advertising and the odd magazine) my little muffin top shop is quite devastated.  see the picture above?  that's the enormous pile of packages that are all waiting to be shipped.  plus, because of the success of my heartsy deal, i am now awaiting solder and wire because my supplies are quickly dwindling.  a couple of days of full lockout (on top of their rotating strikes) would have been okay.  but now we're talking daaaaayyyyysssss.

i, like millions of other canadians, are waiting to see what next week brings.  there are rumours that talks have broken off between the two sides at the bargaining table, that the government is pushing back to work legislation.  and i know everyone is trying their best.  while i am all for fair pay for hard work, i have to point out that the mail is still quite relevant in today's tech-savvy society.  i am lucky that i have a full-time job as well as my little jewelry business, but many of my crafting colleagues do not.  and this is killing them. 

please go back to work.  we need to work too.

(so please know that almost all of my orders are packed up and ready to ship just as soon as they start accepting packages at the post office again!)
