    Its my 9th day at UPS as a loader, I overheard two of the older workers complaining of not getting their double bonus. My hub gives bonuses of 150 for showing up everyday.

    Are double bonuses a common thing? I have never heard of it brought up before.

    UPS has given bonuses for trying to retain employees for PT ranks. They can take away these bonuses anytime they feel like because they're not contractually obligated to do so, sounds like your coworkers came up on the short stick this week.

    It's the half ass way to paying their part timers more. They should just get with the times and give them the extra 150 in increased wages. Was talking to an old vet at work the other day and he made 10.00$ an hour as a preloader in the early 90's. Guess what I made as a preloader in 2016-17: 11.00$ an hour. Pathetic

    That was good money. In 1982. I still made more working PT back then.

    Just used a inflation calculator to see what a 1982 8.50 an hr would be now it's a little over 22.50 in today's wages.

    I am at $35.30/hr working PT so I guess I am ahead of inflation. Thank you Teamsters. Or should I be thanking all the $13/hr dues paying members.
