    Verizon wireless employees pay for benefits and don't get a pension. Why should landline employees get all these benefits? Especially since tons of landline employees do nothing but sit around in there trucks half the day because they have an alotted time for each job and have no incentive to finish it early and move on to the next job? I work for wireless and we have countless complaints about installers and customer service. Wireline gives wireless a bad name so change need to be made. I am happy verizon isn't and wont be backing down.
    Lol You must be a young buck with nothing to loose.

    You know nothing continue to work your wireless non protected job.

    "Protected Jobs" are part of the problem because it encourages laziness. They lay off thousands every year, so are the jobs really protected?

    The CEO, executives, and the rest of the suits are still overpaid.

    Jon341427, you are right about sitting in the truck till the alloted time is used up. They are not the model of productivity by any means
    I was driving by a VZ wireless store in NJ today and there was one guy holding a picket sign standing in front of the store.

    Picketers at VZW store in Kansas City

    I'm off in Kansas City at a community FM conference, and the news came in that the local CWA chapter is picketing the VZW store here, about 50 or 60 people.

    The news reported that they're not longer picketing and are going back to work.

    Verizon employees are among the best paid in the industry. Why they complaining?

    there were probably near 100 employees at the Lawrence NY store on Long Island. Really screwed up traffic!

    Verizon workers are complaining because they are the unlimited bread and butter of the company and they want their fair share. Verizon makes billions of dollars a year. Break bread with your employees
