    Verizon Strike 2011: A Sign of the Times as Americans Go Wireless

    I don't think is wrong to be on strike and protest against cutting benefits and work rules. What I see wrong here is this:

    Verizon reports sabotage as workers continue strike

    Typical Union business. And they call TP's terrorists?

    12 acts isn't really news worthy.

    My freind works at Verizon. He got a job there b/c the pay a lot by the hour and the benies were great.

    After 17 years his hourly was nearly $40 and his benefits would make a DC pol green with envy. He made enough to buy his own home and live a very good life where money is never a problem, no matter how much he wastes.

    Then he started crying like a bitch b/c the company wants them to pony up for some of his benefits.

    Told him; "Gee, If you pay what they are asking you to pay, you will only be able to burn through 49 clips of ammo instead of 50 a month."

    Now he's crying about having to actual stand around for 4 hours a day 2 days a week and do the actual striking.

    aside from that, he's good people.

    It's not worthy because Union is doing it.

    One act by the tea-party supporter would be all over the news.
