To the Editor:
Verizon has just announced a surplus of 1,078 area workers at a time when our economy is at a very critical stage.
This is a company that made $6.4 billion last year and made $4.3 billion in the first three quarters of 2009.
How much is enough? Where do we draw the line? This is a very profitable company. Our customers and our members contribute to these enormous profits.
We all have a responsibility to improve our situation, but we need corporations like Verizon to meet us half way.
