Ok this is not to belittle opinions or other ideas on this site , but to shed light on what we sometimes say as UPS employees about the company we work for. And believe me, I come home many a night feeling exactly what I read on these pages. The simple reality is we work very hard and get compensated well. More pressure is placed on us, but the truth is every industry in America is doing the same thing. My wife is an RN at a hospital near here, nurses at her hospital are being pushed more and more. And they are dealing with life and death. The truth is, good jobs with good pay and benefits are hard to find, very hard. It is a good thing to share the trials of this job here, so we all know we battle together. And we also need to keep aware we are in a pretty good position. Most of us full time live pretty good lives, (on the weekend and on vacation) so I just wanted to add a little balance to the discussion, and keep it grounded for myself and others. My humble opinion , a 23 year driver.
