It's sad but since the 1982 wage reduction ups has systematically destroyed what was once socialy benificial part time jobs. Young part timers used to be able to pay tuition,buy books, rent a room,buy clothes and food and own and operate a used car in exchange for thier back breaking work at ups. Now not one new hire can do this compared to tens of thousands pre 1982. Yet ups sells this slickly as offering great oppurtunities etc. Yet pt's pre 82 could go into driving etc . Ups has only increased the % to increase the savings through exploitation of high school youth etc. It is a national disgrace that ups gets 8 to 12 hrs of reasonable work productivity in less than 4 hrs time and all this with the low wages costing less than it would cost to own and maintain slaves. UPs needs to reform and make a committment to the American Public to return to the days of being socially benificial /responsible in regards to part timee compensation.
