If you read the article, it says the union CWA wanted Bernie Sanders for President.

Tells you a lot about what type of people these are.

let them strike.

I dumped AT&T last year. When they started talking about streaming videos and I couldn't get a call through, the wife's text messages (incoming) got in as much as two weeks after they were sent (and she was in town every day, constantly had signal), I figured all the bandwidth would go to video and voice communications would suffer.
Besides, their service sucked once you left pavement.
I haven't regretted the shift to another carrier.
