    USPS clerks are not salaried employees. They are paid by the hour. A clerk's hourly wage starts at approximately $15/hour. A clerk will "max out" at approximately $26/hour. Postmasters are salaried. Their salary is based on the size of the facility they manage. Some make less than $40K/year, while others can make more than $70K/year.

    I don't know what a post master makes, but clerks make about 40K, gradually increasing to 50K after about 10 years.

    They make between $15 to $18 per hour depending upon the job they have and how long they've been there. You can always find out by calling their personnel office - they are required by law to provide the information. Then again, because the information is available to the public you can actually find out on the internet.

    Any time I've done the math, it comes out to about $25/hour.
