actually the public has been great to strikers. Honoring our picket lines, honking horns in support, bringing food and water and joining in the picketing against Verliezon. A mighty powerful 5%. but you knew that.
managers don't know how to do the struck work because most of them never did the work. The best Union craft workers have wisely refused offers of management "promotions" over the past 15 years because they saw how poorly they treated the management. the experienced and talented people are on the street.
good luck with that thesis. Verizon's name will be Mud if they let this go on too long. Working people of all stripes are fed up and Verizon is now the poster child of corporate greed thanks to little Mark gReed
as Verizon finds itself adrift in the perfect storm of this strike and an anti- fat cat corporate political climate from the right and the left. Off shoring middle class jobs; check. Tax Dodging through tax loopholes; Check. disregard for customer service; check. Shorts are going Wooooo Hooooo!
