Lack of Hours

Okay, my husband works at a station in Lawrence, and is a PTF. He's getting less than 30 hours this week, and that's with a hold on a route. Three other PTF's are only working 20-24 hours. There are 2 TE's, each only working one day a week (usually Saturdays). His father's station (Topeka) has the TE's working 20 hours a week, and the PTF's a full 40 hours, with regulars still getting full-time hours, and overtime if signed up.

I'm just trying to figure out why there's such a big difference in the amount of hours being offered and "available". My husband's held route is one of the longest (11-13 miles walking, depending on mail amounts), and they're pulling off of him to get the regulars their full 8 hours a day. My husband says its because of the increase in fees towards advertisements, and while I have seen a drop in those type of flyers, but I haven't seen much difference in the amount of junk and regular mail I get (I miss two days, and our box is overflowing, and 80% of it is junk). Could it be because he works in a primarily college town (home of University of Kansas)?

Forgive the newbie-ish questions, but with the fact that he has to drive 45 miles to get to work every day, them sending him home after 2 hours is starting to hurt our budget.
