    I believe he is talking about the layoff rumors. Bottom people on the center seniority list have plenty to worry about if work slows up.

    Layoffs have already been announced by UPS prior to peak season.

    I thought he was talking about the Mayan Calender depicting the end of the World in 2012.

    Jan. and Feb. in our center has always been slow. Lots of drivers on layoff, somedays up to 8 full-time drivers off. That would be a Monday for sure!! Those months are very hard on the checkbook. Save, save, save is all we do to make it; just have to hang in there and wait for more retirements.

    It might be rough until the 20th of Jan, Then Obama will take over and everything will be alright.

    There will be layoffs for sure. The amount will be felt depending on volume and vacations. This will be worse than usual though. Economy is going to be worse next year than 2008.
