    Tonight on NBC Nightly News Lester Holt is doing a special on working conditions at UPS. Looks like it’s going to be interesting.

    I just caught the preview. They were interviewing some guy who says he nearly died from the heat.

    This is the reason UPS never allowed the show “ undercover boss” to ride with a driver (fedex did) ...too much would be revealed

    The Amazon workers have been the ones in the news more than anyone else. There have been reports on UPS workers in the past but it has been a while. It will be interesting how accurate this report will be. Unlikely it will be a pro UPS PR stunt but hopefully it won't go too far the other way (from reporters who are used to working in clean air conditioned offices).

    How do you think upper management feels about this show? I'm sure it won't be flattering to the company.

    Trust me, Fedex gave them a very narrow view of the company and selected only proFedex people for her to interact with.

    Maybe the heat is easier if you adjust to living without a/c like most did pre-refrigeration ?

    UPS probably didn't even provide him a safe space to go cry in.

    Somehow, the beating after complete collapse seems counterproductive?
