    You are kidding, right? I hope you like working for $11-$12 per hour, with no benefits. Express sucks, Ground sucks worse.

    You don't make service at ground, you won't have a job plain & simple.

    Official Ground response? Actually, even if an ISP were going to offer more money, it couldn't be very much, because that would destroy the low-wage formula. If Ground drivers were suddenly all making $17 per hour, contractors would be dropping like flies because Fred would never allow the Ground wage structure to go that high. Is this really that hard for you to understand? What would you and bbsam be making if your drivers made that much? you'd be out of business.

    Silly MFE. I do have drivers who make that much. But they are also the most productive drivers so it only makes sense.

    Silly bbsam. Notice I said "all Ground drivers", not a handful.

    Wow, $17hr and no benefits for your most productive drivers! I never realized what a good deal you are giving them.
