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.
