    Actually, before you go dumping on the BGR, simple research has the story.

    Thanks for the article.

    There was a link in the comments section of this article to another article which contained this quote,

    "Verizon, which has more than 235,000 employees, said today that it will pare the workforce in its declining wireline business, slashing expenses as the economic slump lengthens."

    So I did a search. Newswires say apx 80 former Alltel employees being laid off nationwide. 40 in Arkansas make up half of the layoffs. This news is about a month old.. About page three of a Bing search brings up the BG garbage. What was the old saying again? If any part of a statement is false, the whole statement is false? I think that applies to BG.

    I think people mistake Verizon Comm for Verizon Wireless. Verizon Comm has 200K+ employees Verizon Wireless only has 70,000.

    Okay, but as mentioned elsewhere recently, this is VZ Communications and not Verizon Wireless. They just sold a bunch of exchanges to Frontier who is taking applications with preference going to VZ employees willing to relocate. Fox mentioned Verizon Wireless as a point of reference Wireless is not laying off anyone.

    Layoffs are never good for employees, but they are the nature of business. Even good businesses have to layoff from time to time. Anyone want to look at the number of people employed by att today? Compare that with how many they employed 15 years ago. Then go back to 1987. Big ouch. Were talking over a couple hundred thousand jobs lost.

    BOS, the crap BG article went from talking about Q2 reports, then wireless phone releases, plus customer gains and then rolled right into the latoffs. They never made any mention that verizon communications and verizon wireless are two different companies. It might be different if they said here's the verizon wireless Q2 reports and they announced layoffs of 8000. Over at subsidiary verizon wireless, rumors of a Palm Pre are again surfacing, gains of 1.1 million customers was reported and job growth is forecast nationwide. but they didn't. The way they reported it if you can call that reporting is to leave readers thinking verizon wireless is cutting jobs. It isn't a stretch to see some people read that and think, "Those SOBs already charge me a lot, they gained 1.1 million and they are still laying off 8000? Screw them. I am going to another company!"

    BG isn't worth anything. What they write is made up and careless.

    Yup vz communication not wireless which has been said countless times in this thread.
    The local news actually filmed outside of a verizon wireless corp. Location today when announcing the layoffs, needless to say that news station got a bit of grief from the corp location. People just don't pay attention and jump for a gain in publicity.

    If you read some the articles - it appears if jobs are lost, they are comming VZ Com not VZW. This may include employees as well contractors

    What I can't figure is that you claim to work for verizon, yet state things that no verizon person would ever say. Many of the things you say are out and out lies and fabrications. Others are just guesses, with many of those guesses so wrong they are laughable . How many more times will you tell someone to uninstall/reinstall instead of giving them educated information? There are your pointers on how to put things over on verizon. Then I look at your handle. Blue is the color of att and bold is a phone on att. Sorry, but I am in smachart's corner here. It helps he is usually very perceptive and knows his stuff as I think he has shown here.

    Ha my handle comes from a song called blue and gold from a band called the ghost inside(check them out). There is not gold bb so i liked the sound of blue and bold. Anyway we use programs like acss and infomanager. I don't know what proof you want? I might work for them but I'm not on here saying that this is exactly what I would tell ppl to do when they call in. I can't push things through the switch for people on here... so... Who cares if I don't brand all my posts with IM A VZW REP, I'm on here passing time.
