what is the average wage of UPS driver you ask?
Averages are so misleading. The average UPS driver's pay at this time 08/01/2010 is about $75,000 cash, and benefits of about $30,000.
But drivers with enough seniority can get more overtime by "bumping" junior employees, and with 15 hours of OT can earn over $97,000. And with 20 hours OT can earn over $109,000 cash, over $30,000 in benefits.
So senior drivers can earn OVER $139,000 in cash and benefits. There are ways to earn a few thousand more by working vacations and overlapping vacations with paid holidays.
