    Don't know if you've heard, but the gov't included in the just signed tax bill a one year 2% reduction in Social Security taxes for employees, employers still have to pay full amount. While I wonder if taking anything away from SS is a good idea, if they're going to give it I'll take it. Now remains to be seen if FedEx will give regular raises next year or will they take advantage of this 2% gift from the gov't to reduce or not give raises in March. If all else stays the same the new rate hikes should produce about a billion and a half extra dollars. So hopefully we should see a decent raise.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    This whole thing of maybe will get a raise or maybe we won't is getting real old. We should expect one and a decent one every year. When a company that makes over 1 billion in profits after all expenses are said and done should be expected to give a raise. I suppose Fred will compromise with donuts instead.
