I like the sound of that!

She is talking about stockholders, not the union workers.

A Wallation® would read like this:


..We must cut jobs and use creative measures to circumvent union rules whenever possible. This and other means will insure profits, and as an extension, raise our stock price, which surely will please our stockholders...

I was hoping it would be:
"Home Depot discounts for all active and retired employees!"
All you have to do is have a "service connected disability" for a 10% off everything at Home Depot. Some HD's give 10% off to ANY Veteran.

They don't even ask for proof. Just say yes at the register to get your discount.

Around here you have to show you Military ID card with the words "service connected" on it. I have noticed other areas of the country are more laxed on their policys---which is too bad because that will ruin it for those who it was designed to help.

Reading her remarks....I’m glad she is at the very least addressing the chaos around us. No buried head in the sand. She’s off to a good start.

Hopefully, her policies will result in more flexibility and empowerment at the local level.
Top down control in a company as large as UPS does not work any better than top down control by the USA National Government!
