    Seriously, I just wanted to look at some cell phones in the verizon store. I dont even plan on buying a phone I just wanted to go look and guys outside decide to heckle me as I try to go in.

    "Scumbag" "What do you hate working families" "Only scum crosses a picket line"


    I have refrained from saying anything about the strikes one way or the other but if the people striking have this attitude then they can kiss my butt.

    They make well over $25/hour plus benefits, stop crying and be thankful you have jobs that make you more wealthy than over 50% of america.....verizon workers, greedy scum.

    Seriously I'd take a verizon job for the normal pay of one of their linemen and have way more money than I make now....plus i'd get more than one week vacation a year with no sick or personal days and have much better health insurance that I would be willing to pay for half of, hey verizon need a worker?

    Verizon workers make $25 an hour? I worked at Verizon for about a week and it was all commission based.

    A freind of mine works for V and is on strike.

    @ 17 years in he makes just under $40/hr

    the reason for the strike is the owners want the workers to pay something for thier insurance. currently they pay $15 co-pay to the doctor when they go and nothing else.

    I don't feel sorry for him or any other asshole that strikes now with UE where it's at.

    I sincerely hope life starts to suck for him and the rest of these assholes.

    The Verzion Union want to do to US Telcom business what the UAW did to Detroit and the US Auto industry.
