I seriously wouldn't bet on the UP doing ANY hiring for the long term. The UP jumped on the PSR bandwagon and damn near drove the wheels off of it. Now to the person that thinks there's no way they'll do deep cuts with an infrastructure bill coming. First of all, you really need to look at the bill to its entirety. You also need to understand that the railroads will cut the workforce if there's a hope they can make money off of it. Do you really think if the bill passes that they're going to hire anyone if they receive any compensation from this bill? No, they're going to cut costs to save money on top of receiving compensation from the infrastructure bill. If you want to doubt that, then look at the others that did PSR. The UP posted record profits just before their massive layoff plan. The UP is hiring now because they've p1ssed off and laid off employees who aren't coming back. Seriously though, don't expect the so-called infrastructure bill to be the saving grace for employees. The UP isn't what you think it is. I'm only telling you this, because I worked there. If you're worried about the layoffs affecting you, then be proactive and find a different job. The alternative is to stay there and wait for it to happen.
