    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    I wish they could go to strike for us over the price of tiered data packages.

    Yep. My dad is management for Verizon...he works in Baltimore; he's been assigned to Boston for the strike. We're about to leave for the train station now.

    First strike in 10 years or so for Verizon (all other contract negotiations since then were settled without a strike)...this one could be nasty given what they're asking.

    The strike is only for wired workers not wireless.

    Im with guidot, they are union workers its in their blood. If non-union workers went on strike they would just be fired.

    Actually if the workers are asking for money (not wanting to take concessions aka paycut) then VZW will likely raise prices to cover it.

    Just fire them all and start over... I bet more than a few would come back after that.

    Edit: maybe not with 2 years od unemployment.
