    Job cuts in air sorts in Dallas-Ft Worth and Columbia, SC at about 250 employees per location. In addition to 60 aircraft mechanics across the country, due to the decrease in Next Day Air volume.

    We knew it was coming. Even UPS is not immune to deep economic recessions. These layoffs are tiny compared to what most companies are laying off. However, when the layoff is one person and that person is you, nothing is tiny.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    Lets cut some IE jobs and bring common sense back to UPS. Just try it for a year or 20.

    I.E. is a good start to trim the fat and think of the money UPS could sell all those little cubicles for. How about the big fat $50K bonus checks that go to these incompetent gateway managers that are clueless. And then there is that brown money pit of a car.

    Good news - it may not have been exactly what you wanted but it still pays the bills. Good luck on the sleeping part.
