“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

UPS isn't messing around

250 UPS drivers in Queens, NY to UPS: "Yeah, we're gonna go ahead and stop delivering packages for 90 minutes to protest the firing of our friend."

UPS to those drivers: "You're fired!"

Heh heh, idiots!

Evidently, that's about half the drivers in Queens and in the highly competitive environment of business package delivery, DHL, FedEx, and USPS will swoop in and grab that business in a hurry. UPS knows this and cannot afford to look like they're caving to stupid work slow-downs.

Moreover, the real unemployment rate is something like 18%. No doubt there are thousands of guys who'd love to be UPS drivers. I'm not sure I'd strike to symbolically support a work buddy who got fired, even if only for 90 minutes.

Heh heh, I'll bet one of them at some point said that exact thing.
