Last week, nearly 40,000 Verizon workers began to strike as negotiations between the communications giant and their union over a new contract broke down. This means that thousands of workers on the Eastern seaboard, including many in the D.C. region, are out in force protesting for benefits, job security, and fair wages. We discuss the local implications of the Verizon strike and the prospects for resolution of the labor negotiations.
