    It looks like we are going to get hit by this bitch Irma. What happens if we are out of power for days? Does UPS pay disaster pay? How do they help their employees affected by disasters? Thanks in advance.

    You get nothing.
    This is one of the reasons you should have an emergency fund.

    Thanks for your quick response. I was just curious as we are fairly new to the UPS family.

    Somebody in Texas posted on a Teamsters Facebook page that the company gave them $500 because of Harvey. When New Orleans got flooded after Katrina, employees were given two weeks pay. These two storms will affect so many employees I don't what UPS will do.

    Hope everyone is safe when this thing blows through. Just think, you'll make plenty of OT after the cleanup procedure begins.

    I can't guarantee it's the same with all phones and plans but I read this:
    ⚠️Hurricane tip ⚠️ - if you lose electricity and wifi, update your voicemail message to notify family and friends and keep them updated. You can change your voicemails as many times as you want and can do it without wifi!! (Include date and time when updating)

    Isn't Socialism the opposite? No work, get paid?
