Who said I wasn't grateful for it?? Do you know me?? No, you don't, just like you don't know any other PT that it happened to. I am very grateful for my job at UPS. UPS IS paying the bills for me. Yes, I'm making a stink about it cuz we were not informed about it, and am standing up for brothers and sisters that are affected by it. Yes, it does make a difference cuz me and nobody else would be saying anything about it, or be upset about it, if we knew it was temporary in the first place. It was literally on our paychecks that it was permanent because they changed our rate of pay. It was not on the retention line, like it was temporary (as I found out, that's what that means)UPS wasn’t paying the bills for me either 20 years ago so I supplemented with a full time job on top. I also didn’t say I hope you got nothing because I got nothing. I said that because you are making a stink about losing a non-contractual temporary pay increase instead of being grateful that you got it at all. Get another job in addition to UPS to supplement your income or quit and find something better.
I don't have to get an additional job to UPS, and there are a lot of PT that don't. Some of us do realize a PT job is what it is and choose to work PT. Not sure you, or anyone else, will ever understand that.
It's funny too, that you and a bunch of others always say...if ya don't like it then leave, It's hard to do that when you like your job and it works for you, like many PT people do at UPS.
Support from long-timers, is all we are really looking for. Obviously that isn't happening, and we can all stay divided like UPS wants us to.
