    Do Black lives matter to Big Brown? - Socialist Worker

    Why has UPS been described as an ethical company? In a press release, Big Brown stressed that "the World's Most Ethical Companies designation recognizes those companies that align principle with action, [and] work tirelessly to make trust part of their corporate DNA."

    But there's something else engrained deep in UPS's "corporate DNA": racism. Across the U.S., UPS has singled out and systematically harassed African American workers, leading to civil right lawsuits, protests by the NAACP and, in one case, a picket against racism by a local Teamsters union.

    Almost everyone at UPS had been singled out and systematically harassed at some point.

    UPS is an equal opportunity abuser.

    An old timer told me the first time I was harassed by management..." don't worry about it. it's just your turn."

    I found that article interesting.
    I know some people actually feel like this.
    I feel lucky to have had my poor but bucolic childhood in rural south Georgia and northern Alabama.

    I used to tell newbies, after they emerged from a major in office butt chewing, due to their running afoul of UPS policy; tomorrow mgmt won't even remember this. They'll have another poor bastard to complain about.
