Workplace Issues Today: FedEx continues to implement cost-saving initiates

Despite posting a small profit this quarter, package delivery company FedEx Corp. announced it would impose further cost-cutting measures expected to save the firm hundreds of millions of dollars. As a result of worsening economic conditions, FedEx is cutting senior executive pay, temporarily freezing some 401(k) contributions, and enacting a 5% decrease in wages for lower personnel. The initiatives come even after the firm already implemented layoffs, hour reductions, hiring freezes, and store closings this year.
