Verizon's Wireless, Landline Workers Caught Up In Strike

Aug 10, 2011

Verizon landline workers are on strike. They say their service is the bedrock of the company's booming wireless business. They don't want to give up benefits just because they work on a less profitable side of the business now. Management says to stay competitive, the 45,000 landline workers can't be paid as if the company is a monopoly.
