Re: This is appauling..
Verizon is non-union. They are a privately held company. They are not reducing their staff, they are paying out bonuses to front line employees, and there are raises going around. Also, the benefits package is great.
You devote alot of time slamming Verizon, but wanna know something? You were not there when they moved 60 plus bikes out of the lobby to provide to families who were too poor to purchase them. You do not see the results of the food drives by employees--for people and animals in shelters. I have seen it and oh yeah, I have pictures too to back it up. Also, our 401(k) matching s fine, our tuition reimbursement is fine, and many other perks. No cuts.
Verizon takes very good care of its employees and they devote alot of time and money on social causes as well. As a Verizon employee, I take offense to your babbling and saber rattling about how evil verizon are. And I do not work in retail either.
One thing you are clearly missing out on is a company like Verizon that offers tuition reimbursement. If you took advantage of that, you'd know the correct spelling of the word you used to show your scorn and contempt is appalling, not as you phonetically spelled it as appauling. I would have thought the red line would have been a dead giveaway.
While you may find it "appauling" that companies are striking, etc, did you offer that friend of yours who lost their house a place to live til they got it together? If not, please stfu as you are being quite hypocritical.
Verizon is a good company and I do not spend a lot of time bashing them. I do however expend a lot of time supporting and soliciting a carrier that is underated just as you justify your carrier. My whole point to this OP was to say that while millions of people are lined up waiting for job offers, the others in "frontline positions" feel their jobs can not be replaced? This would be narrow thinking. I am trying to convey common sense. You need to read some of my other posts. I am not for big corporate payouts but this is no time to be screwing with your lively hood. They know that if you don't like it, then you should step aside and they will give many of those millions the chance to do the job. That's their mentality not mine. I believe in standing up for my rights in a company, but you better have a confident level of financial equity to supplement yourself because your pride can lead to a fall.
As far as helping my friend: He lost his 75,000 dollar a year engineering job so I had him do some odd jobs around the house that I could have easily done myself. Then I paid him. once with 150 dollar food gift certificate and then cash of 175 dollars. Both were for snowblowing my driveway. I also gave him other jobs in other property locations when needed and paid him well. When it came to losing his house, I kindly offered a stay at one of my rental properties for free and he declined. He is living with his elderly parents whom will sign the house over to him once he establishes a an new career in becoming a case worker.
