|This is urgent. 40,000 Verizon and Verizon Wireless workers were just forced to go on strike to protect their jobs.
After ten months trying to reach a fair contract, workers walked off the job at 6 a.m. today.

Verizon workers are standing together to make sure the needs of working families are met, instead of standing by as a handful of individuals get richer and richer.
They’re standing together because Verizon has fired, threatened, and intimidated working people at Verizon Wireless who are trying to create a better future for themselves and their families.
They’re standing together because they want to earn a living in their own communities instead of moving away from their homes and families for months at a time. They want good jobs to stay in the United States, not be sent overseas.
They’re standing together to make sure that working people at Verizon can not just make a good living, but have a good life.
