    I like how Fred is bitching about a 35% corporate tax rate when FedEx Corp has paid an effective tax rate as low as -3.2

    Another case of Fred trying to deflect blame for your miserable working conditions...

    Make sure when they bring this up at a meeting, you ask if they know what Fedex's effective tax rate was, and proceed to tell them if they don't know....

    I guess if Republicans had their way Fedex would be paying -23.2 %....errrr, receiving a couple hundred million

    That puts my 10% effective tax rate to shame...

    MD will be having a meeting tomorrow at our station, I guess this is definitely going to be mentioned and more excuses not to give a freaking good raise. So tired of this BS!!!!

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    More than likely your MD is a huge weasel worshiper and has been practing his or hers song and dance to perfection in response to that question. Lies, that's all you gonna hear.

    The 35% Corporate Tax Rate has been an ongoing GOP talking point. As you pointed out, FedEx pays far, far less than that, and so do the rest of the big companies bitching and moaning about being overtaxed. Poor little job creators. I'm sure they won't mention record profits, because that won't play very well into their sad refrain.

    My guess is that it will be another "justification" for low or no raises, and our ridiculous medical and dental programs.

    and worst of all, 'Letter From the Chairman' doesn't even make good toilet paper

    And it was not just printed at FedEx Office, it was "proudly" printed.
  9. Please note that within FedEx Office, the company is strictly referred to as FDXBJ. Zero tolerance policy on that, get it right. Thanks.

    I stand corrected. Completely and humbly corrected.

    Thank you for the learning opportunity sir.

    This is a total republican ruse. Always state your tax prior to deductions. Even though the net tax, the final amount is always a lot lower, embarrassingly low. Hey they have to have a reason to bitch otherwise they'd be ok with a Democratic president and that just can't be.
