Tonight on the Larry King show, Larry will interview two UPS employees. Here’s an excerpt from tonight’s show. Larry: Dave, you are responsible for one of the largest computer systems in the world. I imagine you started at the bottom of data processing and worked your way up. Dave: Absolutely not. I have no computer education. Working your way up at UPS is kind of like that original Star Trek episode where Spock and Kirk wind up in an evil parallel universe and the only way to get ahead and make untold millions is to gang up on your superiors. Therefore, although I may be unworthy I am filthy rich. Larry. Do you work hard, Dave? Dave (laughing). No, Larry. That was never in my game plan. Larry. (smiling) Heh, heh, heh. And, you, Miss UPS Driver, how hard do you work? And by the way, may I say that all UPS drivers should wear shorts? How hard do you work? Miss UPS driver. I can’t really tell you. On the one hand I want to work as many hours as possible to feed my children and save for their education. On the other hand if I don’t pick up and deliver all my packages in an unreasonable amount of time, I can get fired. If I work slowly, I book more hours. If I do not work fast enough, I am fired. The managers require that I work faster than humanly possible despite the weather conditions, road conditions or my deteriorating health. I work HARD. I mean really HARD. Larry. So you must make more then Dave who doesn’t hardly work at all. Miss UPS driver. No, Larry. He makes millions. I make about $70,000 a year give or take. Larry. Dave, does that sound fair to you? Dave. That’s how big business works in America. The harder you work, the less you make. Some of UPS’ fired managers are now slinging hamburgers at the Mickey D’s. They get yelled by their bosses and by unhappy patrons, are frequently accused of short changing or spitting on the grill, all for less than ten dollars an hour. They could have stayed at UPS if they only would have stopped caring about the employees in favor of the shareholders. Larry. Time to pay the bills. We will be back after this message. Dave (in the background) We try to stay ahead of the curve. Go where the puck will be not where it is. Our mind’s eye is as far as out future. Er, that’s not right. Best prices. Lowest rates. We’re a partnership. Er, We used to be a partnership. Fastest shi* in the shi**ing business. Number 88. No number 44. Infrastructure. Yeh, that’s it. Right--sizing. Demotions. Distrust. …. I should have taken my disability retirement. I feel so tired. Miss UPS driver. Join the club Commercial Break.
