Uh, Fedex doesn't deserve any credit for creating jobs amidst their latest plan to get rid of salaried express drivers and push the load of their express volume onto part time hourlies and independent contractors at their ground operations.

If anything, there should be protests in the street over this, not praise.

I've said it before and I will continue to say it. The Atlanta Business Chronicle is pure garbage. This is nothing but a puff piece for one of greediest gangster capitalists in the world.

Yeah. Why would anyone want to work and provide for their families. We should just tax the rich more so these unskilled workers don't even need to work.

It's called telling the truth. I really wish that people would try that sometimes.

Also to note: no one has debunked what cittic10 said. Telling...

So instead of having several hundred full-time drivers with benefits, FedEx will have several thousand part-time underpaid drivers with no-benefits...who will push up the underemployment rate and if they get injured, will get the emergency room care that will ultimately be subsidized by Joe Sixpack taxpayer.

Seems like a real crappy deal to me.

Is that Reverse Robin Hood? Take from the barely middle-class to give to the now lower class and other lower class? Or is it reverse socialism, where full-time drivers are laid off to spread their "wealth" to the unemployed?

Man, this state is a bloody joke...
