85,000 Verizon workers walk out


In case you haven't heard by now, at midnight Saturday 85,000 Verizon (aka Bell Atlantic and GTE's love child ) employees will be officially on strike. Those 85,000 employees consist of operators, clerical workers, and line technicians. Negotiations are continuting, but according to this Reuters report, things look bleak. If you live in the Northeastern US and want a DSL installation (like me), you are SOL. Bell Atlantic isn't the speediest company to begin with, and I doubt this strike will help any.
Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
