Yesterday, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a memorandum to the heads of executive departments and federal agencies that provided guidance on the implementation of the January 23 Executive Order that directed those entities to freeze civilian hiring. The OMB memo issued yesterday afternoon (M-17-18) indicates that hiring by the U.S. Postal Service is not included in the hiring freeze.
