[SDCPJ] Verizon Strike Solidarity Picket - Saturday at noon



Verizon Strike Solidarity Picket
Saturday August 20th, from noon to 2PM
at the Verizon Wireless store in Mission Valley
980 Camino de la Reina, San Diego, CA 92108


Join the ISO in showing support for the 45,000 striking Verizon workers! This Saturday, August 20th at noon, stand in solidarity with our striking brothers and sisters while condemning Verizon's corporate greed and tax avoidance.

The Verizon strike enters its second week today, with 45,000 employees protesting the company's demand for more than $1 billion in cutbacks to health care, retirement and other benefits. But the company's aggressive efforts to win concessions come at a time when it is pulling in BILLIONS in profits. Not only did Verizon make more than $20 billion in profit in the last four years – all while paying NO corporate income tax – it used loopholes in the tax code to get a billon dollar refund check from the IRS. Verizon made $12 billion in profits last year alone. They paid zero in taxes, but they did manage to spend $34 million on lobbying.

Spread the word! Bring your friends and family! Stand up to the war on workers!
