"Somewhere a Village is Missing Twelve Idiots!" - Casey Anthony
I never lost a cent on the jobs I didn't get!
J.C. I/they/we didn't win anything beyond a different bargaining structure. Believe me when I say this whole thing with verizon is a complicated issue to understand. I spoke someone who said the company representatives flat out refused to negotiate or budge on any demands. Outside pressure was brought upon verizon, not to cave in and give up, but to simply negotiate, agree to talk things over.According to a friend who is still actively employed, the hard wire side of the business is very profitable and in demand.He said big business is not conducted with cell phones. So the strike may be on hold and workers back, but there is much to be discussed and ironed
out. I'm sure there will be concessons regarding contributions towards healthcare, I just hope both sides do what is right for the workers, customers and stock holders. Not an easy thing in this economy, even if there is profit in the equation. Frank
I don't think this formula can be applied to the many companies in serious financial trouble. The ones that have lost millions or billions have few if any options.
