First, let me be clear I'm not talking about FedEx.com, the consumer website. This is the internal site that employees read, and lately Fred has been piling it on about how the "private sector" and free market principles are the answer to the recession. This smacks both of the Tea Party and Fred's desire to futher his own causes in terms of the RLA. This is more of the "unions are bad, free markets are good" crap that Smith has spewed for years, and the upshot of his message is that the government had better not play games with his special exemption. Today, Fred is trumpeting the visit of Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke to the Memphis Hub, which supposedly showcased the power of the private sector (read a non-unionized FedEx) to turn around our sputtering economy. Never mind that the low wages Smith pays actually detract from the possibilities for economic turnaround because his employees cannot afford to purchase the items our economy produces. More hypocrisy and spin from the masters of the craft. Hey Fred, why not really apply those Free Market principles you stand upon and eliminate your personal government subsidy (the RLA classification)?
