UPS Lays Off 100s of Workers in Biden’s Hometown Scranton

UPS is laying off hundreds of workers in (and around) resident Joe Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania.

232 employees will work through the holiday season until their final day of work on February 25.

“This layoff will be permanent, and ‘bumping rights’ (that is, the right to avoid termination by displacing another employee) do not exist,” UPS said in a letter to affected employees.

Employees told local news outlets they feel like “we don’t matter” and that it is “just a terrible blow” for those who have worked for the company for years.
