A post office worker in Russia has spoken out about the work she is doing to pay for her kids’ school fees.
The post office in Moscow posted a picture on Facebook this week of a Russian woman with a young boy at the job.
The woman, who does not want to be identified, told news agency Interfax that she was taking the child to school on Friday and had to work from 5.30am until 9.30pm.
The Post Office posted a video on its official Facebook page this week which showed a woman delivering parcels, taking out envelopes, and sorting boxes.
In the video, the woman is seen walking to her mailbox and says she does not have the money to pay the bills.
“I do not know where my savings are,” she says.
“I am working on this and I am not sure I can do this full-time.”
Russian post office workers have spoken out to express their frustration about the lack of work opportunities and wages.
The Russian post office, which has 5,000 employees in Moscow, Yekaterinburg, and Vladivostok, said it will be launching a new job offering next week to help those workers find work in the country.
“We have launched an online job listing for our post office employees and we have received more than 10,000 applications,” the Post Office said in a statement.
“This will be the first time in Russian post offices’ history that we have created a new open position.”
It said the new position will be offered in the Russian post-Soviet region of Transdniestria.
