    Isn't it amazing how bad XPO is ? We are looking back and saying that Con-way actually treated us BETTER !!

    Mine has already told me to quit as well. It's nothing but conquering my own laziness and having had enough. Extremely empowering when you know she won't cut your junk off for walking out whenever you are finally ready.

    Wal-mart dominates the retail world. Does that make it a good place to work ?

    It's not going to get better. Con-way is dead. YRC didn't fold up and die like management thought they were supposed to. ( Not that I blame them, who knew the teamsters were such cowards ? They gave up way to much. In my opinion. ) It cost this company everything. That's what happens. When the brass makes mistakes. They are all running other companies now. This one got sold off. And now XPO is taking bids.

    And most people believe no one has any use for us. XPO did buy us at a gift of a price. Obviously, we already know what our market value is. And just the LTL ? Because I think we all agree whoever buys XPO will keep Menlo. It's not pretty. We are as discardable to XPO as CFI was to Con-way. Only CFI had a use and a purpose. They got bought up and are still in business. Who will pay for this mess, now ? Just the LTL ? Not a good looking proposition.

    Since deregulation, this is the model. Companies get big and then fall. And new companies race in. It's the whole circle of life thing. Go watch The Lion King. Hakuna Matata. All that :shit:.

    Maybe you can carry on about a helpless union drive. Yeah, vote a union so that maybe in 5-10 years from now you can tell everyone what a great experience it was. Because it didn't change the outcome. Didn't change much of anything. But it made you feel better. Okay. That makes no sense. But if that's how you feel in the wake of everything. You're just blind. Which.....

    Regardless, tears will be shed. How could they do this ? After all these years, there are still folks that are completely clueless. Talking about how they have to much invested. Bott has pictures all over this company holding a shovel and breaking ground. You want to talk about someone that invested in this, well he's gone. Actually, a lot of the old guard are gone. When do you open your eyes and look at what you refuse to see ? I get it. Denial is a defense mechanism. I understand. But it won't actually stop anything either.

    This is another big fault of the union movement. After closer examination, this ain't worth fighting for. Who wants to give up anything more than what has already been taken. Other carriers are offering better wages and better working conditions. Not to mention the jobs outside of LTL. Why at this point, would anyone give any more of their time towards this than the absolute minimum to get by ? Which is the same reason we have all these problems with damages and general laziness. No one cares. And the ones that do care are helpless to do anything about it.

    Worser than worst ? Naw, not yet. We still got some room to go. The race to the bottom is on !
