It would be great if some of our fearless leaders came out of hiding and explained themselves and their continuing push to squeeze all of the little remaining blood from hourly employees. Ops and Senior managers would be fine, but how about some of you MD's and above? Sure, times are tough, and fuel prices are high, but once you've extracted all the productivity out of a human "asset", where else is there to go? It's interesting how nearly all of the cost-cutting gets shifted onto the hourlies, and very little is demanded of "leadership". Your salaries stay the same, and the bloated upper and middle management workforce in Memphis continues it's mindless dicates to the field on how we need to cut costs by slashing away at labor. And since you generally don't have a clue about Field Ops, many of your ideas actually cost more money than they save. Have you ever considered consulting people who do work in the field, talk to real-life customers, and have actually handled a pkg during their careers? You can sit in your cubicles and meeting rooms all day long brainstorming "solutions", but if they are all worthless, what have you accomplished? By the way, how many of you have been shifted away from your families to Tues-Sat workweeks? ....NONE.
