Verizon Wireless worker.

Management refuses to give raises to wireless workers…. Verizon Wireless management refuses to raise retail workers pay or improve benefits by stonewalling negotiations for a fair first contract at Wireless stores in Brooklyn and Massachusetts. They know that if wages and benefits improve for unionized workers at those retail stores, then they will likely have to raise wages for all of their retail workers. At the same time as management refuses to improve wages or benefits for retail workers, they also refuse to offer fair wage or benefits for technicians who maimtain the wireless network. VERIZON WIRELESS is the most profitable part of company that make over $1.5 billion a month in profits, the company can afford fair wages and benefits for wireless workers.

But he has yet to do so, and this failure became headline news when the Panama Papers indicated that he had set up an offshore holding company to shield his assets from taxation.
