Thousands of Verizon employees heard a message from Steve Earle last week calling out Verizon Communications for hitting up workers for another $20,000 a year in compensation cuts while posting another record earnings quarter this year.
As part of Shareholder Spring, nearly 1,000 workers, students and progressive activists demonstrated inside and outside Verizon’s annual meeting on May 3 in Huntsville, Ala., demanding that the company stop its assault on customers, employees and American taxpayers. The company has earned the nickname “VeriGreedy” for its emphasis on corporate greed.
Check out this video from the shareholder meeting, featuring Earle’s great song, “God is God.”  
Earle is the three-time Grammy winner who is a strong supporter of workers fighting for economic and political justice, among other progressive stands. Check out more at
