Sounds like business is good, right? So why is Verizon out to gouge customers and destroy middle-class jobs?
The answer is simple: GREED. Verizon is VeriGreedy.
For Verizon's top brass, no amount of profit, no bonus, no salary will ever be enough. And while they squeeze customers to line their own pockets, they simultaneously downsize their workforce, outsource to cheap – often overseas – labor, and slash employees' health care and retirement plans to fill their pockets even further.
Here's what you can do to fight back.
