What happens when they can’t downsize anymore?

Do they plan for the people that stayed at UP to continue working at a piece that’s on the verge of human possibility? Hard to think that anyone can work at this tempo continuously, for a longer amount of time

Best place to go backwards.

UP is one of the few work places that rewards your good work ethic and loyalty by making you go backwards in your career. Thanks UP for demoting almost all of your workforce. You know how to treat your employees right.
