Rural Carrier

Rural Carrier

An employee of the United States Postal Service who delivers mail in areas with low population density. Rural carriers were introduced in the 1890s; previously, people who lived in rural areas had to go to the nearest post office to pick up their mail. Unlike other letter deliverers, rural carriers do not wear uniforms. They also have their own labor union.
