    From the linked article.

    Driver training is crucial for Atlanta-based UPS, which employs 99,000 U.S. drivers and says it will need to hire 25,000 over the next five years to replace retiring Baby Boomers.

    UPS is a tough company to work for. Every second of your time is accounted for.

    It is good salary though

    Well it is only 1 example and is not showing anything in terms of the government doing right....

    I am just more amazed by the salary for a driver

    Umm it is replacement jobs for retiring employees over the next 5 years. Not additional jobs now.

    Nothing to do with recovery jobs folks, just disperse and go home, nothing to see here.

    Still more people employed as retirees are no longer in the workforce
