    I thought maybe we were the only hub still pushing that kind of volume.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Everybody all across the country is getting crushed. Freakin ridiculous but killing them in the pocket. Doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon.

    Personally I think their trying to break down as many drivers as they can so they don't make it to full retirement. Just my opinion.

    I agree. Force out all the older employees. Its working too because most people with option of retiring got out because of harassment and wear and tear on their bodies. Most of those are gone so now its the ones getting close to retirement in the sights. UPS loves the 10-15 year drivers more than anything. Too much time in to quit and a long way until retirement. Most of them just have to endure the abuse because of no other choice.

    I would think UPS would love the 6 month - 4 year driver the most. Higher production and lower cost.

    At your age you may want to be more choosy with what you commit to memory.
