Verizon technicians and customer service reps walked off the job over 2 weeks ago from the wireless business section. The were striking outside the New York offices in New York City. There are picket lines at Verizon Wireless stores in a number of cities. Over 37,000 workers from all over the Country say it is about more than wages and benefits. There was an offer from Verizon but it was rejected by the Unions that are representing the workers .

the whole economy is going to poo, yeah gas is cheaper right now, but one cannot afford to live on the wages provided, and when they raise those wages prices go right on up more, so it's a cycle of work hard to get nowhere.

Will have to take a look and see what else is the cause for the strike. The economy stinks here and the majority are struggling. Hope this strike works out well for those involved. Intel laid off 12,000 American workers to be replaced by foreign workers. Bad times here. Just took a look: 5,000 jobs outsourced to Mexico, Philippines and Dominican Republic by Verizon. Yep, the way things are here now. I am sure Verizon will outsource even more.
