‘Fragile’ stickers

What’s the point of ‘fragile’ stickers on luggage or packages? Shouldn’t everything be handled with care? If baggage handlers/delivery men don’t see a ‘fragile’ label on something, do they toss it around like a ball? Do they play soccer with it?

This isn’t a rant about those working in the service industry, I just find it strange there is even a need for such stickers. You see, even when packages are labelled fragile they aren’t handled properly:

So why do we need ‘fragile’ stickers again? If anything, we should have ‘sturdy’ stickers instead for things that can be thrown around and everything else be delivered and stored properly.
