  •  That's not why they work so hard.... (0+ / 0-)

    When I was loading trucks at UPS, many moons ago, everything was measured, yes, but with a purpose.  For example, a driver's route was calulated at, say 9 hours.  If you finished in 8, you were paid for 9.  Finish in 9, and all ok.  Finish in 10, consistently, and you were an ex-UPS driver.  

    The harder you worked, the better you did.  Unfortunately, when I was a loader, more than 30 years ago, you were part of the Teamsters contract, and could join the union.  Best paid part time job ever.  Some years ago they cut away the loaders as part of a price negotiation: and loaders are making not much more now than I did 32 years ago.

    To avoid starting dumb wars, punish the dumb people who vote for them.
