On this special edition of "This Week With Tonja Withers," we will be discussing the Verizon strike and how it is truly affecting the workers and their families.  The war on collective bargaining goes on, this time at Verizon. Despite making $19.5 billion in profits and paying out $258 million to its top 5 executives in the last four years, Verizon wants to take back more than 50 years of collective bargaining and destroy middle class jobs.  Verizon’s demands include: freeze pensions for current workers and eliminate them for future workers, allow contracting out and offshoring of more jobs, slash sick leave, completely gut health care plans for current and retired workers, and eliminate disability payments for injured workers.  Join me and guest Minister Patrick Brown, a Verizon employee for 21 years and his wife, Minister Cynthia Jacob-Brown as they bring a perspective the media has not covered - from a Godly point of view!
