Rural carriers receive salaries that are based on a combination of fixed annual compensation and an evaluation of the amount of work required to service their particular routes. They also receive a maintenance allowance if they are required to use their own automobiles. Substitute rural carriers receive a base pay for the days they work and the same mileage and automobile maintenance allowance given to regular rural carriers.
