37,000 AT&T workers embarked on a three-day strike, demanding a better life

Over half of the protesters are working in the wireless segment. They have been joined by employees that work in phone, landline, and cable services businesses in California, Nevada, and Connecticut, as well as DirecTV technicians across California and Nevada. The strike covers 36 states and Washington, D.C.
Some AT&T stores have been closed for the weekend, although the carrier remains largely open for business. The strike is expected to end Monday morning. The last time AT&T had to face a workers strike was in 2012, for a period of two days. The carrier is adamant that it already offers "generous" wage and pension benefit increases, along with healthcare benefits similar to what other unionized employees have accepted.

Don't know how they compare to Verizon, but Verizon is commission heavy and if you don't sell well, you don't make much. However if you're good at sales, you can make over $30/hour on the weekend. That was working as a part time employee.

Or you can just get a real job and make over $30/hour 40+ hours a week.

What's worse is that CWA only pushed for a three-day walkout so they wouldn't have to dole out strike pay to the RSCs picketing. Total slimeball move. CWA failed them, and when 70% of AT&T is union, and they all have cogent agreements, the problem here wasn't AT&T.
