snail-mail, e-mail and a possible postal strike - a tipping point?
That's the title of my Slaw post for today. It reads as follows: News reports say that there may be a postal strike in Canada later this week. If it goes ahead, I'm wondering if it might be a tipping point that leads to even less mail being sent.
If we look at the mail we receive at home (after we recycle the junk mail), much of it is bills to pay. The major utilities and credit card companies have online bill presentment options that they encourage us to use. I suspect there are a lot of people who have not made the switch to receiving their bills online simply because they are creatures of habit, and don't bother to take the time to make the change or learn how to do it.
Will a strike be the event that changes that and results in a significant uptake in online bill presentment?
