Lola McGee, a Former United States Postal Worker, Tells Why
Lola McGee, a Los Angeles resident and former long-time United States Postal Service employee, in her memoir, Why People Go Postal: From An Inside Personal Perspective, cries for help in written correspondences to the Postmaster General, but to no avail.
For years, many pondered one question: Why do people go postal? In this first-hand account, a former United States Postal Service employee sheds light on a discussion that is long overdue. McGee states, "There are hundreds who have suffered tremendously while working for the United States Postal Service; some died, taking their hurt and pain silently to their graves, while others are physically or mentally ill as a result of working in such a horrendous environment. Some lost their families behind the stress placed upon them from their job, and they had no where to turn." Why People Go Postal: From An Inside Personal Perspective maps out McGee's detailed personal account of how being an employee of a prominent United States government agency ruined her life and health because of racist managers coupled with incompetence and institutionalized discrimination from the bottom to the top.
Transparent in her story, McGee hopes her experiences will aid those who suffer at the hands of evil-spirited supervisors and discrimination in the workplace, by showing subtle ways in which one discriminates by race and gender. She only has one goal: to raise public awareness about the harsh treatment and intrinsic discrimination that takes place inside the United States Postal Service, and offering understanding why the phrase, "Don't make me go postal," was coined by the horrific behavior of postal employees pushed over the edge by pressure and maltreatment from upper management.
McGee swears under penalty and perjury that all information in Why People Go Postal: From An Inside Personal Perspective is true. She shares a never-ending trail of documentation—letters written to management, supervisors, EEO filings, Injury Compensation, and the U.S. Department of Labor—demonstrating the discrimination and abuse she received. Furthermore, detailed are work records, reports, and medical records.
"There is no job worth destroying your mental and physical health. You can get another job, but regaining your health and the life you once had may be questionable. My suffering from the job stress not only destroyed me, but it destroyed the relationship between me and my significant other. If you do the research, you will find that many relationships and marriages have been ruined for people working at the United States Postal Service. I pray that I will one day regain my health." — Lola McGee
