Re: The unions will probably try to take over VZW Verizon wants to partner with the Cable industry? Sure, expand FiOS to 95% of your footprint. Whether there be television franchises or not.
The unions want to deploy FiOS everywhere, which you people always seem to want. But then you start screaming this anti-worker BS, and side with a company that wants to kill off jobs and give you LTE everywhere which will destroy your wallet.
Im tired of hearing people judge the worth of others. If you think being a toll collector is an overpaid, awesome job, take your BA and Masters, and fill out an application.
So many hypocrits and turds on this website, it truly is sickening.
I totally agree

This is a snowball effect. If Verizon gets what they want, YES prices for wireless will go up, Yes unemployment will go up, YES other industrial sectors will do the same thing if Verizon get their way. Outsourcing is a prime example of this same idea where if one company can do it why cant we!!!
Unions are where BENEFITS for working at a company came from as well as being off on the weekend. Unions have been a major part of this country and its development.
If Verizon get their way, you might as well get a second job just to pay your cable and wireless bill. I also feel bad for the cable companies as well because with Verizon this will not be the end. This deal will be the beginning of another trick they have up their sleeves. Why create a product that is superior in every way to your competition then kill it off to become partners with the enemy???
