    I watched Fox News cover the UPS hiring several times throughout the day and was wondering why they focused on them. Usually everything is focused on FDX.

    I want to know why they time you at 15.5 seconds WITHOUT using seat belt.
    I want to know why the truck has a shine?
    I want to know how you are suppose to find the package in that time frame?

    14 thousand new Teamsters over the next 5 years, all averaging 70 large a year. Who paid for this infomercial? Aside from the color brown, all other facts in this one were fabricated.

    This number of jobs sounds like normal turnover to me. We have so many drivers that retire, get fired, get promoted, or go out on disability. We have a lot of Cover Drivers not working, just like everywhere else.

    All publicity is good publicity. If a news organization wants to do a positive story on your company then why not. UPS, comes off looking good, even if it's workers know the facts.

    It's all about wall street ladies & gentlemen. It makes us look like a good investment. Remember, there is a contract that's coming up in a few years.

    It blows my mind how they are training 14,000 new drivers, with more than half from the outside, when we have thousands of our own guys waiting for years to go driving.

    Think about it. This is ammo for Fox, FedEx and the scam. This way they can say that UPS is doing much better than FedEx, and has a need for more members (new FedEx members) in order to fund the pension plan. How could poor little FedEx compete against this Brown Juggernaut. More lies and spin from your friends at Fox "News". Look at the comments of the part-timers in the centers being told no FT for years and layoffs in other locations. The Republican lie machine and it's poster boy Fred Smith are behind this.
