Uline and U

Talk about anything here. Post lifespan is 1 year.

I know it's not really news but I would just like to remind everyone that supporting uline and their products supports an ultra right wing agenda.

These amounts are staggering.

I see uline tubes promoted around here quite often, and they are generally good products. Just know where your money goes.

This thread is about uline, not general politics.

Speaking of uline, please stop using their thin chitty tubes. Only use the thicker ones or dont use em at all.

I've tried telling artists like Shep and Englert since they both used U-line. No response from Shep. Englert replied that a lot of corporations have people in charge that do things you may not agree with, but what are you going to do? Personally, I would switch to Yazoo, but that's crazy talk.

My partner graduated in the same class as Brian U. from Lake Forest High School and they are friendly with each other even today, but just casually like on Facebook and stuff. Brian is their VP of Merchandising.
They have built an incredible company starting from his Mom and Dad's basement. They are stupid
wealthy owning islands and jets, etc. Brian is actually kind of a somewhat shy and quiet guy. I have met
him at reunions. Kind of bummed to see those contributions. The Uline telescoping tubes are my favorite.
Thanks for posting this.

I really appreciate every who gives a crap. I'm unsurprised by the general lack of interest though.
Frankly, I'm shocked by the amount of Bernie merch shipped in uline boxes, it's baffling. Like all that "make America great" stuff made in China. It's a funny old world we live in hahaha

Didnt freethewestmemphis3 work there? Pretty sure he wrote about how crazy strict they are at the company, and something about shitty dress code and even worse leave policy.
