If you live in the Mid-South, FedEx is probably considered to be a "good" job, given the preponderance of anti-union, low-wage, right-to-work states that constitute that region. The trouble is, most of us don't live in that region, and it isn't a good job in California, Massachusetts, or other states where costs of living are higher. The Purple "answer" is always " If you don't like it...move", which is pure crap because FedEx does business everywhere, not just in the Mid-South, so to pay the rest of the same lousy wages doesn't hold up logically. Dear God and Jeesuz, please don't make me move to Memphis or Arkansas just so I can maintain a decent standard of living, which according to Fred is a single-wide and a 1972 Vega. Hey Memphis, here's a clue. The rest of us aren't going to settle for a wage and benefit package that fails to take into account geographical differences. The market levels are a joke, especially when $14 per hour in Memphis is about the same as $10 per hour through much of the rest of the country. Fred, you aren't competitive, and then you and MT3 wonder why you can only hire the least desirable candidates for jobs? The smart ones quit within a few months and then you get to spend 3 or 4 years trying to train and re-train someone who will eventually get canned for being a moron anyway. I guess that's just the Mid-South mentality at work. Clueless, stupid, and dedicated to the principle of "Low Wages, Everyday". Too bad you think we're as dumb as you are there in Memphis. We're not, and the natives are not happy. And while I'm at it. FU Smith!!!
