So UPS is becoming what every other company is these days

Corrupt, greedy, indifferent to their workers, etc

i was just watching an interview with a few workers on this site UPS workers denounce Teamsters effort to impose sellout contract, despite “no” vote on oct 6 when the result came back. I think it's pretty sad what ups is becoming.

Asked earlier if ups is worth it these days and most of you say no just stick with walmart lol maybe the strike will be effective?

A blatantly ineffective union has by its own doing kicked open the doors for UPS to behave like any non-union company with obligations to Wall Street would.

Making $40/hr to drive around and honk at cuties all day. It's alright.
I was gonna say. Were gonna be at 41 bucks an hour. I still work at my own safe pace, Have full benefits and lots of vacation time. It sucks what happened though.

Beats the * out of working for walmart.

Walmart. LOL.

Here's my take on UPS after many years.

If you have already put the time into the company, you feel like it'd be hard to leave. I love my coworkers even though sometimes it can be a little bit toxic. The benefits are great but can you be happy somewhere else? Probably. Money doesnt but happiness. You can make 40$ an hour and still be unhappy.

I think this is why a lot of part timers never start driving. It's not always about the money. For some people, it is, but others want a place they can go to work, have little responsibility, and then leave.

There's nothing better than punching out and being able to leave work at work. As for management, it can always be hard to trust them. I love my sups and managers, but it feels like any day you need to be able to understand that they won't always have your best interest at heart.

I know some people have posted on here about becoming emotionless robots and I think it holds up. There comes a point where the job just becomes easier and bearable when you just stop caring and work like a robot. It has happened to me, and I know what it's like.

In 40-60 years, there won't be any pkg car driving careers. We'll all be replaced by drones and automation. UPS does not care about us, IT cares about survival at any means necessary, and will continue to slowly cut our rights until we're not needed anymore. Welcome to capitalism, we're not special. Work, enjoy the good living, stop complaining. We're not special
