In general, employers value employees who see a problem, identify a solution and then act quickly to fix it.
That’s what Bianca did at the Verizon Wireless store where she works in Brooklyn, N.Y., when she organized her co-workers to join the Communications Workers of America (CWA) so they can fight for pay raises, better benefits and improved working conditions.
Although Bianca has been an exemplary employee with no disciplinary history with the company, Verizon Wireless claims Bianca engaged in conduct that warranted her dismissal and fired her. Bianca says the truth is that Verizon Wireless fired her for speaking up. Let’s send a message to Verizon Wireless that this is wrong and we’re not going to stand for it.
