Verizon workers are part of the 99%! Together with Occupy Wall Street, we will march from 140 West Street past Zuccotti Park to shine a spotlight on corporate greed at Verizon and Verizon Wireless.

5:30 We will march from Liberty Plaza to rally at a nearby Verizon Wireless Store by 6pm (final store location not announced).
45,000 Verizon and Verizon Wireless workers are on the front lines of the struggle against corporate greed.
Verizon is the 16th largest corporation in America, with one of the largest union workforces. In the past four years, Verizon made $22.5 billion in profits and paid its top five executives $258 million —yet wants to slash workers’ benefits, force us to pay thousands of dollars more for health care, reduce our sick time, and eliminate our job security.
