11. About This Cost Cutting

This tool De Joy is claiming the move is to cut costs & improve efficiency.
Aside from the political motivations, and the pension funding issue impacting cash flow...
From a purely business standpoint, it's easy to see the cutting of overtime. I don't agree with it, and don't believe it's about money, but pure business economics can explain avoiding 1.5x hourly payouts to save money.
BUT...
How does removing machines installed to improve efficiency, improve efficiency?
The very fact that the next 2 initiatives were eliminating efficient automation and the boxes that widen distribution efficiency says NONE of these moves were about efficiency.
This tool was the CEO of a logistics company. He clearly knows a tiny something about efficient operations.
Eliminating efficiency tools because they're not efficient enough is transparently phony.
Especially when you look at the map posted above. Big, blue cities in big states being targeted.
This is an obvious political scheme.
DeJoy better be ready because Porter is coming!
