I think that one of those ream of paper boxes alone weighs 50- 80 pounds. The minnie fridge I'm guessing more than that and this is just a few of this guys stops out of an entire day. The trucks are getting bigger to accommodate greater and greater loads.
The constructed trucker shortage is a load of crap...because actually there is a company implemented hiring freeze in place.
UPS achieves higher profits on the backs of their workers "stress managing" them into faster and faster productivity disregarding potential for injuries telling them they aren't working hard or safe enough while they demand they ignore safety to hurry up and deliver off the record but record every move these workers make following and stalking and pressuring them with disciplinary action arbitrary firings even as the demand for online deliveries grows and grows and grows and they have them working 12 to 14 hour days and pressure them to skip their lunches. Now they just want to get rid of those pesky benefits and wages...and they could make even moar money for the one percent and ceo. Because our country no longer stands up for the working class. Our politicians grant WS the right to bully and abuse our citizens with no repercussions. They do everything to ensure the success of business while busting up and trampling the very people who make it happen.
And the subcontracter scab scum wait in the wings at the ready to siphon off the rights of hard working men and women and deserve the slave labor beds they are making. But union standards helo create and set all labor standards. Pretty sure none of us are looking forward to slave labor conditions. Be sure it will come for all of us. We all need to fight to keep unions alive.
