At my station, at least, Fred is well on his way to elimination of mid-to senior range people. In other words, new people are predominant. What this really means is that a "wheel" that was once round and ran smoothly down the road, is now square, covered with spikes, and not very efficient. The best part is that the newbies are leaving before they even reach halfway down the learning curve, so they keep getting replaced with people just as dysfunctional...or worse. And it's not just couriers who are quitting, because managers who leave aren't downgrading to FT courier any longer...they go elsewhere. Fred's dream is alive and well, and boy, is it fun to watch. I would love to know their turnover costs right now.
