FedEx application: We’ll be sending workers home with $1,000 per day

By Mike HagerichAssociated PressAUSTIN (AP) FedEx is preparing to start sending workers to their families in the fall with a new application for a trademark for the term “home delivery.”

The application, filed Friday, is one of a handful the company filed in Texas last month to trademark the term home delivery.

FedEx says the company is a global provider of delivery services and that home delivery is the only term it will be using.

The company’s trademark application in Texas calls the term the “new-fangled concept of delivery” and says it’s intended to serve customers who have been waiting in long lines for delivery for a long time.
