    Default FedEx Hikes Freight Rates by 6.9%

    Despite signals of a slowing U.S. economy, shipping giant FedEx (FDX: 86.10, -0.73, -0.84%) revealed plans Friday morning to boost freight shipping rates by 6.9% this summer.

    Memphis-based FedEx said the price hike applies to freight shipments within the contiguous U.S., between the contiguous U.S. and Canada as well as within Canada.

    Here another version sister... Means FedEx can pay more wages, pay free medical and contribute at least $3 dollars for a decent pension and not 31 cent an hour.

    But politicians? Unions didn't buy Obama?

    Like it or not, Fred has a right to donate as he pleases.

    I say, you're the problem. You want only unions to have rights, and everyone else bow down to union power. Sorry Crazy, this isn't Europe.

    That darn US CONSTITUTION just keeps getting in you're way.
