Forgetting for the moment the minutiae of problems plaguing WM on the inside, the much greater concern is how their failures will affect the USA economically.
WM is still the largest private employer, and the leading employer in 22 states. The recent post re. closure of over night hours is a smart move for the company—but that's a 33% reduction in spendable income from a very large slice of USA employees. Sure, they'll move around many of those folks to other hours and areas. But I think we all know there's not gonna be enough room to accomodate all the loss. One third is a big chunk to fill.
As online shopping and the residual effects of COVID continue to erode WM, we're going to be seeing some rough fall out from it all. What are your thoughts?
