    Former UPS employee defends decision to quit on blogs - By RACHEL TOBIN RAMOS, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Bordoli, a software engineer, said he analyzed financial data such as overtime hours. Bordoli said that he got upset when he saw the signs the pilots were holding, such as 'UPS/DHL destroying 10,000 American jobs.' He related it back to his job, which was auditing expenses to make sure there was 'no fluff, no extras, no overtime, no bonuses' for UPS' Southeast region.

    He was in the middle of running the same software for the entire U.S. work force, he said Monday.

    'I was drilling down to find out who were the repeat offenders of this excess cost,' he said.

    He quit after realizing that what he was doing could affect other workers' livelihoods, he said.
