Singleton Backs Striking Verizon Workers

Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-Burlington) on Monday voiced his support for Verizon workers who are fighting for fair labor treatment from the corporate giant.

"The current struggle between Verizon's rank and file workers and executives embodies much of the challenges that American workers face today. As workers continue to see corporate profits rise while employee wages remain stagnant, demanding greater sacrifices from the struggling middle class is not an adequate prescription to fix what's wrong here.

"Every time sacrifices are made, it's always on the part of rank and file workers and not executives or shareholders who reap millions each year. Fair compensation and sufficient relocation notice that won't tear families apart is not too much to ask for.

"A stronger middle class benefits us all so I stand with Verizon workers in demanding fair compensation for their labor."
