The strike is so bad, Verizon is changing their slogan from "Can you hear me now?" to "Ah, don't listen to those union guys!"

The strikers are so bad, the CWA is sending them to London for advanced mayhem training.

Actually, that's only the Verizon Wireless slogan.  I think it's the Verizon land line union that's on strike.  I think a land line is something I used to have.  My boss used it to keep me trapped in the office.

It's a joke for anyone to still keep an old school landline.  Those folks should be looking for another LINE of work while they are picketing.

I live in an area where cell service is marginal and a land line is still cheaper than a cell. I have land, voip and cell because none of them have perfect reliability. I have the least problems with the land line. If my phone is not working, it's an hour drive to work.

 

There is a wireless union with about 50 people in it that is also on strike.

 

The strike is a financial boon for me personally, but I'd prefer that it get settled.

Verizon farmed out the landlines here to Frontier.  They were nonono2.gifslamming additional services to our plan that we didn't order about every other month.  They charge $110/month for a basic landline here not including the dismal 80 KBPS DSL they also offer.  I'm sorry for those that don't yet have the cell infrastruture to ditch that seriously overpriced old phone line.  As soon as we found a way to use regular wireless handsets in the house (yes, you can use several at once for family talk with someone) we ported the number to a cell added some minutes to our plan and the landline was gone here. 

 

Heads up for those working in landline support.  Nortel should be a clue.  Your industry is obsolete or soon to be.  Now, fiber optic DSL might have a future.
