Hopefully the strike will last six or eight months or more. Almost everyone has a cell phone these days. Wirelines days are numbered. Wireline will be sold off!
What does it cost to ship a job?
fwiw Verizon is only marginally profitable in the wireline business. Sooner or later the wireline business will be sold off and the union will then be negotionating with a new company without deep packets. Good luck with that!
