Verizon is a healthy, profitable company. They make billions in profit every quarter. They paid no federal income taxes the past 2 years and somehow even got a tax refund. They also took 1.5 billion $ in bailout money from us taxpayers even though the CEO stated that they did not need any bailout money.The top 5 executives made a quarter of a billion dollars over the last 4 years. So, how do they repay this country and their workers ? By trying to take away the union workers pensions, healthcare plans and most importantly by moving as many American jobs as they can overseas! How does this help America's economic recovery ? Who are the politicians that allow this? Oh ,and the CEO makes the same amount of money as 300 average employees but I'm not supposed to mention this little fact because if I do then Rush Limbaugh says I'm engaging in class warfare. This corporation has no allegiance to this country, only to the stock price. The media does not report this because they are afraid to lose ad revenue. There has got to be a middle ground between corporate profits and maintaining a viable middle class in this country.
