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.

Only scum pickets with unemployment at 9.1% :lol:

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.

I'm priced out of Verizon. There's no way I could afford anything they offer.

Thousands of Verizon union workers could lose their benefits on Aug. 31 if both sides cannot agree on a new contract, the company said today.

Verizon said it sent out letters to its 45,000 picketing workers reminding them about a contract provision, approved three years ago, stating that medical and other benefits would be suspended at the end of the month in the case of a strike.

"It’s not a surprise to them," said company spokesman Lee Gierczynski. "If the striking employees are not serving our customers, our investors should not be expected to pay their benefits."

I love how idiots on strike who refuse to work criticize people who are working.

I don't give a rats ass about a picket line. If it makes sense for me to do business with a company then that's what I do.

We've known each other for years and share a common hobby.

He's a libertarian / JFK democrat. He bitches about everything that group would bitch about, but when the chips were down, he showed he's fulla shit.

We're still freinds, he just knows that I think he's an asshole, especially since he knows I struggle to make ends meat.

Yes I do. He's proven he's an asshole, and needs to learn what a great job he has with excelent pay and benefits. I'd give my eye teeth for his job and benies, but he's walking off over the demand they cough up ~5% of the cost of the premiums for HC.

Only scum pickets with unemployment at 9.1% :lol:

somehow that sounds like you are promoting socialism or pure communism.
Share and share alike?

How is this any different from a corporation trying to up it's bottom line?
Corporations are people too ;)

I think the intent behind his comment was "With 9.1% unemployment and another 10% not working but not considered unemployed its amazing that some people will complain that they actually have jobs. Especially when the average salary, before benefits, of these people is well over the average income for all americans."

Well maybe I projected just a bit there ;)
