USPO Offers Hero Job Back, But ...

Item: Postal service offers fired letter-carrier hero another job, but ... it cuts his pay in half and eliminates vacation and benefits/Alecia Warren, CDA Press

More Info: But the post office's gesture doesn't have the 21-year-old elated. The casual clerk position is a big step down the ladder for him, he said, after climbing the ranks through the post office for three years. "It will basically cut my pay in half, take away union, take away vacations, no other benefits," he said. But doubting he could find anything better with the state of the economy, he accepted.

Question: Is this sufficient amends by the U.S. Postal Service for a wrong-headed decision to fire a young hero?
