In the latest issue of InsideUPS (Spring 2017) there's an article that goes into the implementation of Saturday Ground. But instead of a strictly informative article, it's almost like it was written for consumer appeal (people who aren't going to be reading it anyway). The issue is full of cheesy koolaid-induced buzz phrases like "A New Day For Ground Deliveries", "It's a Saturday thing", and "Consumers Ask; UPS Delivers". The photo heading the article shows an assumed mother and daughter looking at each other with overzealous joy over an open UPS package. An adjacent photo shows a driver in all smiles while making a delivery. "Yay! Mommy gets her Amazon sh* on Saturday now!" From what I've gathered on Brown Cafe, Saturday Ground implementation has been hairy: long time bid routes being changed, large unfamiliar coverage areas, tremendous cuts on Mondays resulting in dead days for full-timers, as well as some 13-hour Saturdays. And I haven't read about it on here but I expect six-day part-timer abuse as well. Yet with all things considered, they send this publication out to us in a format like's it's something we are supposed to get excited about. We are not the consumers reaping only the benefits of this, nor are the majority of us drunk on brown koolaid. Just my long-winded observation.
